Thanks for the replies. I saw the posts you mention on the mailing
list. This will be a good way to help me keep my technical edge in
Linux, even though my Debian specific hacker prowess is what I consider
limited. Years of Redhat and Mandrake have softened me (which is why I
started playing with Debian and *cringe* Gentoo last yr).
