Ximian have a Gnome 2.0 channel where you can get snapshots. Lately I
understand that they have been consistently in the "it works" department
(not always the case over the past few months). So if you do not want to
wait for their "official" release, grab the snapshots and enjoy.

I cannot imagine a situation in which top-posting is ever better than
in-line posting. Why should my eyes have to bounce up and down to work
out the context of the reply? Urgh.
