Greetings!  Just a short note -- I committed your wonderful work into
CVS head as is, as I ran out of time to go over it thoroughly and
didn't want to hold back the project before my week's departure.
Thank you again!

Most things still work.  Maxima cvs and axiom builds are broken
temporarily due to apparently minor pathname issues.  Perhaps some of
you might look into this while I'm gone.  Otherwise we can clean up a
bit when I return in a week's time.

Am uploading a Debian gclcvs package too with preliminary support for
common-lisp-controller.  Haven't tested it yet, and issues doubtlessly
remain, but its a start.

Please accept my apologies for the delay.  I hope your ssh key
registration process is unimpeded.

Take care,
