Very cool. I am happy that you guys were able to pick out a way ahead.
I am also very happy to see that the new features will make it into
the 2.0.x branch.

I am going to work on the RHEL5 builds of Revisor today and see how
that goes, but first I have to build and install a non-PAE kernel for
my Pen. M stupidity of a laptop that I have at the moment from work.

Let me know if I can help, sell, pitch, etc.
