updates in RELENG_4, despite the existance of RELENG_5.

process of moving to a new flat, so I have zero time for
testing right now.

Maybe my USB modem will work one day.  For the time being
I'm using a good old serial (RS232) modem (fortunately my

"Python tricks" is a tough one, cuz the language is so clean. E.g.,
C makes an art of confusing pointers with arrays and strings, which
leads to lotsa neat pointer tricks; APL mistakes everything for an
array, leading to neat one-liners; and Perl confuses everything
period, making each line a joyous adventure <wink>.
