OK, Tim, thanks. I read there has been controversy about XML but I
didn't know (and still don't) the details.
On another note, how hard can it be to check checksums before putting
files on mirrors? It seems like a terrible waste of bandwidth to let
hundreds, maybe thousands of users try one mirror after another only to
fail updating at the end...
