    Yeah, I agree with you. Anyway, I've never said I will integrate that IDE
    stuff when I become the 2.2 maintainer :) ... I just said I'll think about it
    ;) ... I never ever want to break 2.2, and such an update will definitively
    break things. 2.2 took a long time to become that stable like it is now and it
    can be broke within minutes. A no-go!

    For users who need/want/experiment with that stuff there is still my
    2.2-secure tree.

    Anyway, 2.2 needs the hashing exploit fix ASAP ;)

    ciao, Marc
