Are they ever! And did you catch the "replace files in use" feature? Yeah it
makes you reboot, but still, pretty sweet.

I keep meaning to suggest the same thing, and maybe even lines like you get on
most such expanding list control thingies. But I think Rob is rolling his own
here instead of using the ListView common control (which isn't available on a
stock 95 machine AFAIK), so lines might be asking a bit much. But I'd think
that at a minimum, simply adding a toggling +/- to the front of each category
string wouldn't be too traumatic. Rob?

Yeah, it did, and I thought it still did the last time I checked (like a few
days ago). I'm resynching to CVS now, I'll rebuild it and see. I need that
rxvt update, and of course the sweet new bazzoo release.
