I'm probably not going to have any time to poke at this before Sunday, and 
then I'll have to re-read the code anyway to see what's already changed.  So 
anything you want to do to it this week won't interfere with that.  Have fun. 

I'm really looking forward to this getting in a busybox release so I can drop 
toybox out of Aboriginal Linux.  I'm willing to hold up the 1.0 release for 
that.  (Considering it's already a couple months overdue...  sigh.)


P.S. Yes, I owe you new binaries for busybox 1.17.1 on all architectures.  I'm 
trying to get sh4 back in the supported target list again first.
GPLv3: as worthy a successor as The Phantom Menace, as timely as Duke Nukem 
Forever, and as welcome as New Coke.
