As a pan user, if maintaining pan 0.14 is easy then I'd think it
would be a good idea.
AS LONG AS they can be installed *together*, so that one can test
pan 0.1xx while being able to fall back to the usable pan 0.14.
That seems like it would be lots of work on your part, and if so,
pan 0.14 still "needs" to be in Etch.
Personally, I don't think I'll *want* to move to pan 1.x, since it
uses the GTK file picker, and the 0.14 file picker is *really*
*useful* for newsgroups.

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
