Seconded. I gave some code of mine to someone with instructions to install chicken to compile it. He said it doesn't work. Oops. Yeah, You gotta use 3.3. Ok, how do I get it. Uh, dunno. He now thinks chicken is a POS. My fault for not testing my directions but annoying none the less. I know you guys are stretched thin but please consider making going *back* to 3.3 or similar easy and obvious from the chicken home page. 4.X should be marked as experimental until 80 or 90% of the eggs work IMHO.

In other words 4.X is exciting and all but some of us are using chicken to get things done and can't afford exciting ...

Many eggs are not necessary anymore (like the myriad of html-generation ones, with sxml-transforms). Where did you get your 80% figure?

You could also provide a list of eggs that are missing for *your usage*. Or even try porting some.
