I hope you'll excuse me if I find this funny. :-)

When you figure out exactly what you want, let me know, and I'll do

With regards to CVS vs released, I understand the desire to use a
released version as a baseline (and it's a good idea). However, there
are at least a couple fixes (at least one of which isn't even in CVS,
since I submitted it about 3 hours ago) which will be neccessary. So
I reccommend starting from a CVS build right now, and moving to the
next release whenever it comes out.
