I proposed something similar a couple of months ago; it appears that
Tony Hoyle is aggressively uninterested in considering such - especially
anything that means he might not see a crashdump, even if it causes
considerable inconvenience to users of his software.  Best of luck with
your proposal, but I don't expect it to be considered.

Another topic, then, for list discussion:

Would there be any interest in / support for a fork of CVSNT that was
intended to implement 'convenience' features such as these, but
otherwise track the stable releases of CVSNT?  The intention would be to
give a broader range of developers commit access to the source, and to
use a system of developer voting similar to eg. Tomcat's to tag 'stable'
releases.  License would be GPL, a CVSNT is now, allowing backporting if
Tony wished.

Let the flame war^W^Wdiscussion commence!
