Well of course not.

Fair enough.

I really dislike having binaries up that don't work. If it doesn't work
it shouldn't be posted. People depending on the bindings for viewcvs
are going to upgrade under the presumption that everything they need is
ready to upgrade...

I don't have access to systems using "d" or "qd". So I have no idea if
they're generating warnings or not. However, the current patch will
still work on those platforms. It just may have a warning about the
format not matching the type exactly. If someone wants to make
suggestions on fixes for warnings on other platforms I'm open to
applying them.
