Please tar it up and put it in a public place, then more people can help.
btw, i heard some time ago that the FreeBSD people were considering a
"Omnis enim res, quad dando non deficit, dum habetur et non datur,
nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est."
"For if a thing is not diminished by being shared with others, it is
not rightly owned if it is only owned and not shared."
Aurelius Augustinus (354-430)
