Much appreciated. Not much to report on dircproxy, upstream is mostly inactive 
most of the time, occasionally posts an updated beta (like, once every year 
and a half). I know there's one patch in the fedora build to fix a crash on 
receiving a zero-length message that I don't believe has made its way back 
upstream (my fault, forgot about it 'til now).

Five down, three to go... C'mon people, you know you want emerald and 
emerald-themes... connect-proxy is dead-simple, but dunno how many people 
actually have use for it (I did 3 years ago, notsomuch anymore...).
