Phew, 4 weeks passed by. Sorry for the long delay.

But finally, I managed to test your binary packages - they look rather
nice to me. Account creation and service activation (--standalone)
worked quite nicely.

The only strange thing I stumbled over was that my Windows XP 64bit was
classified as NT 5.2 by uname, so that the additional account magic was
triggered. But that's likely another story - and it worked perfectly,
only the messages were a bit confusing.

So far, I did not test/review the READMEs, the client and the source
package, but I'm quite sure I can give you feedback on those on Monday.
