Nope :( Hence this whole discussion (I am trying to conceal the FreeBSD
nature of the problem). Actually, since it has little to do with FreeBSD
itself I thought it was well worth nothing.

Sure. I don't know about Debian (other than it certainly didn't make a good
impression on me) including it with Woody or even potato EVER. Then again, it
takes Debian a few centuries before they decide to keep upto-date with the
rest of the world.

I wonder if anybody w/ other distributions knows which is available in what?
That would kind of give an idea of whether this is important to look into now
or not. My point is, Debian is not my gage.

"incremental" another word for 'hard-coded' ,-)
