i never understood this. Ariff has made the binary module mentioned
available and i have used it with good success with all the
standard apps. what is the problem, fear of incompatibility
or really unresolved issues ?

now that we are just past a release it would be a good time
to attempt an MFC and deal with issues that may arise.
the more we wait, the harder it becomes.
