That wasn't really the point I was trying to make.  I have chosen not to put
it into anon CVS at the moment because eCosCentric may want to offer it as
part of eCosPro.  I think, at some point, they will release an updated tree
for anon CVS.

If I were to release it, I would probably just fork the tree anyhow.
