Well. I think that actually the changes that I've made are 100%
portable into Userlinux. Not only *can* they moved but I think all of
the changes proabably qualify as bug fixes so you wan't to take it
anyway. I don't even see the need to maintain a seperate branch.

Sure. I've read this on the UL mailing list. With my Debian hat on, I
thank you. :)

Bruce told me to contact someone other than you who has not responded
to me. Since you responsive, I'm happy to work with you on this.

Is it in a CVS/SVN/BAZ repository? That would be really ideal.
