I already have a package made. Will upload about noon today if I
hear no objections or conflicts by then.

Compiled cleanly on mine as well. :^) Not a single change necessary to
the source. A few edits in debian/ after 'dh_make', and voila! :^)

I had thought about that.... Seemed too much like work. ;^>

Actually, I'm not going to include any defaults, other than the
ones hard-coded in the source, in the -1 release.

For the -2 I plan to kludge up a patch to send upstream that
will make fidelio check ~/ for configs, and if they are not
found there, then it will load "reasonable" defaults from
/etc/fidelio/*, or some other likely place, and save them in ~/.

[Or if none are found at all, behave as it does now....]

Otherwise, I can find no way to include defaults other than
diddling the source; adding to/replacing what's already there.
Rather than fattening up the executable with a "static char *",
I'd rather fatten it up with a file search, so that I can include
and remove things in later releases....

I have no set time frame for this. Could be tomorrow, could be
a month from now. Maybe Upstream will beat me to it. :^)

Schedule is hell....

I'm tossing -1 out now so that people can use it, and I'll put
out the -2 Real Soon Now(tm).

Care to send me _your_ favorite trackers, to be included in -2? :^)
