it is wise, imo, since it can only improve and the changes are bugfixes
only and tested (with all the isdn user in de.alt.comm.isdn4linux).
additionally i talked with one of the main developers of isdn4linux on irc
early this morning on #linuxger (ircnet) and he said the latest isdn-
sources (which andreas uses) are really better and more stable.

everybody reads READMEs?

and what about the many europeans depending on isdn? so drop the whole
isdnutils package? unwise, imo.
