On the contrary: I'm glad you did (since I see you did the upload in the meanwhile).

That's precisely what I was about to propose. I don't expect so many fixes
either, but if there are some, I'll provide you with a diff and comments, and
let you update the generating scripts to your liking, since I'm unable to edit
ruby efficiently.

... please no kidding, we're discussing serious business here ...

Ok, I'll have a look at it, and try to write/edit a little something.

A first glance it will never be a problem for the reason you mention. I'll have
a second thought at it tomorrow just to be sure. Thanks for the info.
