I apologize. I often post things with a skewed view when I can't get
something to work the way I want it to, then I forget my earlier
thinking. Maybe I should disable my mail program whenever something
goes wrong... but then again.

But I wasn't messing with interface builder when I did that. I was
just deleting a directory which had been in my repository since the
initial import, and a lot of other stuff got deleted too. Of course, I
really have no proof for this.

Loved your book on open source CVS development, BTW.
