Gah, please don't do this. I had lots of changes locally and you knew
I was in the process of updating this and changing things due to all
the emails I had going around.... I had a local build with all these

This just made all the work I did (and was doing) moot and duplicated.
Next time please contact me. The web interface does indicate it is my
package and it is known that I was working on it...
