Yes, that's how I'm using it. You would share the database, I think, or
have to copy it manually. I managed to automate that, but I'm afraid it
is not portable. Anyway it should not be a problem.

Well, I have a local port that should be portlint'ed a little. Currently
is using unstable releases + some local patches, but I could made it
pull out sources from the cvs instead.

So what would people prefer the port to use:
- unstable releases + patches on major bugs (pro: it should always work;
con: patches would have to be made and *submited* in our cvs - which
could take a while)
- known to be working cvs snapshots (pro: more close to head)
- cvs head (pro: the blending edge with all new features; con: well, you
know, it could wipe out everything, as the maintainer will have little

Rob, would you like to maintain this port to or should I ?
