This will be sooo cool when it works.

By the way, folks, when it finally looks like we've committed everything
on our 1.1 plate, can we coordinate a plan to attempt to compile *all* the
distributed modules and make sure there are no compilation problems?  A
formal test suite will have to wait, but I think we could really use that
as a smoke test.  I only want us to guarantee functionality on those
platforms which we know it compiles cleanly under.  I volunteer BSDI 2.0,
Solaris 2.5 (gcc and cc), and Irix 5.3 (cc).  In fact, let's make this a
little more formal

These are all platforms mentioned in Configuration.tmpl...
