Ah yes, the illustrious CVS... I was afraid there would be a wrench in the
machine as I cannot imagine I'm the first to encounter this 'problem'. Ah
well, it's not a big problem, I can make the changes myself within minutes
whenever I have to debug utils.c.
Are there any concrete plans about moving to SVN?
