I haven't forgotten -- but the more people we have running this, the more
problems we'll smoke out. (Example: see Jared's post about sound versus
networking. I may have such issues, too, but I haven't run with ACPI for
long enough to know.) I just can't afford to be without USB ports, so at
best I can experiment.
