Patches please!

I just started this (I'll be on a flight to the bay area, of all places
in about 20 minute), and I ran into stuff like the make_s_table host tools
getting compile as arm binaries. 

Have you tried disconnected operation yet? I'd like to make Preware packages
for OpenAFS and Mutt. Dovecot might be interesting as well to be able to point
the Pre mail client at a local imap server.

Having good AFS support seems like a killer app for a smartphone. Has anyone
done this for Android yet?

Unless hours were cups of sack, and minutes capons, and clocks the tongues
of bawds, and dials the signs of leaping houses, and the blessed sun himself
a fair, hot wench in flame-colored taffeta, I see no reason why thou shouldst
be so superfluous to demand the time of the day.  I wasted time and now doth
time waste me.                        -- William Shakespeare
