It's a Linux x86 (Debian) box.  I fetched the binary (.rpm) and did
not bother compiling it myself.

This seems not to be 1.0b3.  Sorry, work is pending, no verification
and test case right now.

That's kind a overload.  I was just about to try it.  I'll spent that

I'll keep that as well. Thanks.

Thats a pity.  Kawa was actually the thing I was interesed in.  What I 
need is a scheme.

Thanks anyway.
