Will you (white pine) be using something like RTPatch, or does the average 3.x
user who wants some working software have to download the entire 11 megabyte
package again? 1 11 Meg file or 11 1 Meg files, it's still a hell of a big
download for something that would be marginally changed (at best) since the
previous versions.

Personally, I won't be downloading it, but I'm just preparing the anwers to
the complaints I'm going to get from my ref's users, "What? I have to download
it all AGAIN?", "So does it work this time?" and "Is it any easier to use?".
Expected answers are, "yes", "maybe" and "no".
