would someone please grab the source and put it in the build tree
somewhere?  i don't want to see the situation crop up again where only a
couple of people in a couple of places have the ability to build milo, and
where it is only buildable on a couple of kernel versions... [as happened
a couple of years ago when jay was one of the few people able to build it]
..... dumping it into a buildd every so often would at least mean that
someone was aware that it wasn't working at all!  :(

saying "oh lets just use SuSE's images" is lame, LAZY, and really not very
smart.  use their patches, but import the source too.
