a so useful thing like the zaphod mode with relatively small users ? in my
i don't think that , in my case i used have it for run my media center in
0.1 and the normal desktop in 0.0 so i can still watch my  media while some
friends or somebody chat or surf without interfece , i can't do that now
because zaphod is broken , with not put a poll for ask if keep the zaphod in
some new way ( or the old way ) of just take out it ..
