Thanks for the code.  Is there any way we can see the latest that Scyld
has done towards their 2.0 release?  Maybe something akin to Red Hat's
Rawhide.  I'm setting up a small cluster that isn't expected to go into
production use for a while and wouldn't mind trying to get some of the
newer stuff you guys are working on to work on the cluster.
