	You probably missed some (from just before the release) - a small
bug fix and implementing -D. I got an itch when I got a second Dfly box
up :)

	There is also a patch lurking in submit@ (from me 28 Jan) to make
jscan -o work. I am using mountctl, jscan along with hose and faucet to do
near real time mirroring of my home partitions between two boxes here. It
works well staging the journal to a local buffer then transferring via hose
with jscan to a remote buffer coupled with an hourly cron that uses jscan
to update a mirror from the remote buffer.

	My only gripe is that hose doesn't leave a pidfile so killing the
sender is not easy.

	I really must get round to writing a cleanout script for old
journal files :)
