    All making a package out of it does is create confusion and more
    bug reports.  I believe it is important not to throw wrenches into
    the works that can otherwise easily be avoided.

    We are shifting to a new major library rev but there's no reason to
    make life difficult for people during the transition.  The CVS tree
    is the right place to put this and that's what I am going to do
    right now.
