  Cool.  Does this mean Heretic can go in as well?  I've actually got a
Debianization diff against one of the beta versions of the Linux port that I
never did anything much with because of the licensing; if someone's interested
in packaging it, I can send them it (and even the orig.tar.gz I used).  I also
have a package of the shareware WAD files..I don't remember if I can distribute
it offhand, though.  It's certainly not free. :)


I haven't lost my mind, I know exactly where I left it.
