Ah, I see. Well, we still don't have 5.005 quite ready yet, and gimp 1.1.5
still doesn't contain Gimp-Perl, but I guess it would work for a little
while. :-) I basically packaged it up so that I could try out Craig's
script for generating the buttons as well as for my own home pages. (Yes,
that's my selfish ulterior motive. :-)
