I've seen several posts that the module won't compile.  Are they
mistaken?
I had that problem too, but it was not solved by a patch, just a small trick.

but anyway, I agree with your that maybe if it is for his client maybe

a server is supposed to be installed for long time.
But it is just my opinion.

I use CentOS and Debian for server aplications and Fedora en Ubuntu for Desktop
