Okay, I think I know how to fix that.

If it's past the middle of May, let's just skip the PR for 0.13
altogether and instead focus on good PR for 0.14 at the top of June.

People who are following the list and want the 0.13 release for
whatever reason (e.g., because whatever opens in Inkscape is good
enough, as is my situation at work, or for testing purposes, or
whatever), it's all there in the downloads/0.13/ directory; it's the
announcement that's missing mainly.

Oh, and:  I installed the broken 0.13 release for the browse tool
before I saw the message on the list about this problem.  Do we want
to roll that back to 0.12, keep it as it stands, unzip Holger's fixed
version (I've checked an unzip tool based on Archive::Zip into CVS
that is capable of doing this, since info-zip does not appear to be
installed), or what?
