I kindof was afraid of that.

Are these different from the ones that hae been available there for some time?  
If so, how different?

How does this relate to version 7.4?  Are most of the backports from 7.4?  
(I'm thinking most are, but....)

Yeah, the more I think about it the more I think that's good.  SuSE syncs up 
periodically with my packages, too, as do other distributors, I'm sure.  So 
probably a good thing to keep it that way.

I released 7.4 upstream packages today, based on the work Kaj did, and built 
for Fedora Core.  They have trouble building on older dists, but I'm working 
on that.
