Thanks very much!  If you have any comments on how I could have made
it easier for you to test (was using git more onerous than the
traditional "here's a patch, cd /to/here ; patch -px < mypatch.txt"
approach?) I'd love to hear how to do that.  As I work with my git
clone "sewn" into the deployed directories like my instructions did, I
find it more convenient to git-pull than apply patches, but of course
I'd prefer to do whatever gets me the most testers :).

Good to hear.

Yes, this is intended as part of Eben's redesign.  If you have time to
read the comments at: may be interested to see the differences of opinion.  If you
have any opinions I'm sure we'd be happy to hear.
