Sorry, I didn't anticipate that my changes would create problems
for the wml2 migration ("{#mainbody:" vs. "{#mainbody#:").
I was hoping that the "{#mainbody:" syntax is faster than "..mainbody>>",
and that it is only a small change from that to wml_2.x's syntax.

BTW, what is the plan for the migration from wml_1.7.4 to wml_2.0.x?
e.g. timeframe, which machine (master or lully or some other?),
anything that we should note, and anything that we could help with...
:-)  (Thanks!)

Where may I find the build log?  (Sorry, it is probably a FAQ... :-)

Great!  Yes, whenever you want to make the switch to WML 2.x, just
let us know, and we'll switch right over.  :-)

Hmm... if possible, it would be really nice to have WML 2.x in
Debian 2.2rev1.  :-)
