And I'll follow that up with a recommendation that people who are going
to run software in production and not hack on it should always use
released versions and _never_ just pull something out of CVS.  Not only
will you be more likely to get something working, but it will be easier
for people to help with any problems you may encounter if you can tell
them exactly what version you are running.
