So the wiki page is going to be updated to reflect that everyone
should stop using the tool now as in three months there will be
catastrophic failure?

I was not suggesting that there be no improvements made to the tool to
clean up some of the issues you outlined, including these two:

- There is no good way to clean up aborted tmp files.
- There is no good way to know what are old files that need pruning.

I was replying to your initial email requesting folks thoughts on
InstantMirror and its direction, in which I asked should it really be
trying to solve all situations or focus on what you called "pretty
useful for home and small office mirrors".   I suggested that it
should focus on what it is good at - home enthusiasts and small office

Can you explain to me why my applications are going to stop working in
three months?  Is it due to the lack of clean-up routines?  Will this
problem go away if there were clean-up routines implemented?
