Hmm, $2 isn't very much nowadays, still you should ask for 
your money back.

As for your other comments, I am well aware of what it is to 
live on the bleeding edge.  However, the arguments Chuck 
made for being careful about adding/removing symbols are 
quite pertinent to the cvs tree.  If functions are exported, 
then the person who exported those functions should be 
prepared to fix them if they are broke.  Removing the 
exports 5 days later is just plain rediculous, especially of 
some trivial matter like standards-compliance.  However, 
since I'm not as prolific with patches as others, I guess 
what I say has very little value ($2).

Cheers,
Nicholas
