That was me :-)

That was also some time ago.

Anyway, so it's clear, I'm definitely not complaining about us depending
on xpg4 (and as I said and you point out, we've depended on it for a
long time).  I was just wondering if there's an up to date list out

As discussed in private email with tron (whose work on this I really
appreciate, btw), I'll try to put together such a list as soon as I get
some time/money to get my Ultra back on line.
