I agree it is a boring and tedious work but it is done in all three 
repositories. However, being a boring and tedious person, I did not read the 
rest of your mail before making all those changes into cvs head. ;-(

Could you put in new tags and include these changes into the release?
I did not touch any perl code.


P.S. Everyone: Your next 'cvs update' will be HUGE so make sure you'll have a 
fast net connection and allow plenty of time. ;-)
