Yes, but then it's more clearly a title. I've left it as-is for the time
being, I'll think about it for a next release.

Anyway, I've gone ahead and uploaded it. Thos of you who've been
beta-testing it for me, note that it's moved from /usr/X11R6/bin to
/usr/bin, as a result of discussions on debian-policy (the general
tendency seems to be to have stuff which uses X but isn't part of it,
outside the X11R6 tree).

Now I hope for a calm weekend before the bug reports start rolling in
