Precisely. An auto-builder. You only have the debs fromm 2.4.18, which are
definately nice to have around, but im running 2.4.20 now, and many others
are running 2.4.20-1. If there was an autobuilder we could all just nab
our modules and be on our way instead of waiting for them to be rebuilt
by hand. Any problems that did occur would then be expidited so that they
could be quickly fixed.
