Yah, I think it's high-time I did a binary snapshot (there hasn't been 
one since 1.1 was released).  I will try *very* hard to do one this 
week, but looking at my calendar, it looks like I'll be pretty busy.

If someone else wants to volunteer to do one, I would *really* appreciate 
the help, and will gladly offer guidance through the process.
