Martin, I would consider the fact that you relinked and reposted within
one day a rather extraordinary demonstration of "commitment to FreeBSD
and its users." I can't see some of the big U$ $oftware companies
doing that --- but perhaps things are looking up.
As for the product, my initial impression is rather favorable, but as
I'm running 5.1 and waiting for Java, I can't compare it to OO.
However, if it comes in as handy as I think it may, and my
accounting department can pay my salary for October, you
may have at least one customer in 29 days or so.
