Probably not... it works in the simple cases and tends to go wrong once 
you reach a certain level of complexity.

There isn't one - it's something I have to remember to build in for 2.6 
(the 2.6 modules file doesn't have one either at the moment so if I 
forget I'll find out soon enough...)

2.6 isn't ready yet.. I plan to get back onto it once 2.5.03 is out 
(with 2.5.03 suite).  The aim is to get it self-hosting a week or so 
after that (upgrade cvs.cvsnt.org) then it should stabilise relatively 
quickly - since when it fails after that I lose access to my own code!

I don't expect it to be production ready for at least a month after 
that.. the plan is to have a 2.6.01 release in December/January but with 
software I've learned never to plan too far ahead...
