That explains lots. Duh. Sorry.

It's not /that/ important. I think we can wait for a Proper Option in
some sort of Proper Configuration File. My ideas about how to run the
config file tend to change daily and be fairly meaningless, so I'm not
commenting on that too much. Just.. keep it something very
Human-readable (XML is nice, but..) and let me write some silly gtk to
manipulate at the same time.

Hah! Go for it. :-) I can.. give you an account on my, uh, firewall,
and then my FreeBSD box, and you can export back from there. In England.
Or not. Hrm. Actually, at least with regard to Evas there's probably no
difference at all. All standard protocols and all that. It's very nice
otherwise, anyway. The *really* cool step will be getting Evas running
on my SGI with hardware GL. :-)

Well, two things. Yep, I'm using Eterm, and I'm also Blatantly Cheating.
Eterm isn't aware of further's background (and won't let you set --trans)
so I'm Esetroot'ing the same background as further first. TMTOWTDI. :o)

Right, I'm off to fail an exam on three hours sleep. :-)
