	I phrased that poorly. The only issue I've had with pth-syscall
	has been at compile timw ith packages trying to install pth as
	well. All applications have runw ithout problems.

	Obviously the final call on this would be Al's, but given the
	apparent lack of problems with pth-syscall I think we should
	go ahead before the 1.6 pkgsrc tag - otherwise we end up creating
	a nightmare for anyone trying to use kde3 with 1.6 tagged pkgsrc,
	plus an extra upgrade pain when we do merge.
