I'm listening.  I'll look after it.  I think the tool stuff and a little
more cvs detail (e.g., the module name) should be in the CVS section,

This weekend is hardware days.  My NAT gateway-cum-webserver burned out
its primary IDE bus last week, and the new woo-hoo! 800 MHz motherboard,
armed with a CPU and too much RAM (didn't know there was such a thing,
did you?) arrived to replace his 200 MHz grandpappy.  Depending on how
clever I am at scraping my knuckles, I should still have time to update
the faq.
