Thanks a lot, that looks nice - deployed on
MacOSX-Intel_3-OSX_10.6.0-gcc_4.0.1 locally, shoot me if that gets
annoying! :)

Hm. Not taking that for the while, as sometimes tinderboxen are

no way of committing a fix him or herself. If the committer needs
help, they're always able to ask the author explicitely.
