OK, thanks for the heads up.

One of those might be from Dan Lewis, but I don't currently know the 
status of what he's doing with them at the moment.

Am rebuilding on Linux 32bit and OSX64bit after a fresh pull from master 
after your changes went in, so at least those should be ok once they're 
finished. I'll not be attempting the Linux 64bit til later anyway, after 
a fresh pull from master again.

As for 4.1, I have to suss out how to switch cleanly between branches 
with git (i.e. rtfm) before I start on that.
