I'm still a few days off sending a couple of ideas to this list about
what to do with sysinst, but we obviously don't want three different
people doing three different things to the same part of the program.

Perry - what are you working towards?  This is where again I'll say

was planning on pincing many ideas from there.

It's good to see some interest in making sysinst better!
