Gotcha, thanks Theo.  Even though it's only a sentence or two for the
explanation, it can draw participation/contribution that might not
otherwise occur.  If there is interest in this, should I submit
another patch against the web site (as served up by spread.org), or
would another method be preferable?

Okay, great.  They're not at the O'Reilly conference in San Diego by
any chance (I'm not there, but some of our other developers are)?

Is anonymous CVS available?  I like pulling from the HEAD of the tree.

Thanks again Theo.
