Would you like to qualify the statement "It's a hacked version"? As far as
I'm aware, it's from Steve Edgar (ex Cornell CU developer), and if he wanted
to call it version 1 then I'm not going to argue with him.

As to what may or may not appear from Cornell as version 1, well that would
seem to be in the hands of Martyne and White Pine, both of whom are likely to
become *very very* unpopular if it loses it's ability to send or receive
colour.

Any information you can impart about this would be useful, since Martyne has
gone strangely quiet about, even after getting some very direct questions from
myself and others.

<paranoia>
Hmm, she took time to blast my very obvious joke, but still hasn't said squat
about whether V.1 will be castrated to please White Pine.
</paranoia>

In any case, I will continue to use the 'hacked' V.1 in preference to 0.92b2
and 2.1.2, and if Cornell releases an emasculated V.1, then I and everyone
else will stick with the 'hacked' V.1. (You will note I didn't mention 3.x,
which you will understand if you look over my previous postings to the list).
