I'm waiting for Ximian...I'm running Red Hat 7.3, so apt-get does me no good. 
I'm not interested in building from source or CVS. I appreciate the posts 
about how to do it, and revealing CVS mysteries. For some apps it's worth the 
trouble- for this, I'll wait for the easy way. 

Say, on the subject of top- or bottom-posting- I'd like to plea for a little 
consistency. Doesn't matter to me which way, as long as it is consistent in a 
single post. Not mixed up like this one, which started out bottom-posted, 
then migrated upwards.
