Ah, didn't think of that.  Sure, I will be busy myself for a week or two, so I 
won't push for at least a week, probably more.

I'm afraid I don't have (or want) access to any Windows machines, so I'm afraid 
that I am relying on you guys to tell me if I screwed up.  Of course I'm not 
expecting you to debug or fix my mistakes for me, and I'm not anticipating any 
new problems, since everything is merely migrated from legacy testsuite to 
Autotest testsuite, with minimal changes required to keep everything working on 
my main machines.

Although I do normally have access to more machines, the flooding in Bangkok 
has made any use of my Internet connection other than email intolerably slow... 
hence the recent flurry of work on libtool (which I can do offline, queueing 
emails for when my connection is next up) to fill my time while I wait for 
things to get back to normal.  The reason I'll be too busy to do much more of 
that over the next week or two, is that last night I actually had a full-speed 
connection to the US again, so I'm anticipating playing catchup at $realjob

Please don't feel that it's your responsibility to painstakingly pick through 
every patch I post... I'd be more than happy just to get the test logs from 
anything I put on for the architectures I don't use to help me 
restabilize the code closer to a release.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday, and sorry for working so much on libtool 
recently: although my objective with the recent modernisations has been to try 
to decruft libtool a little, and to make the barrier to contribution much lower 
than it is currently if at all possible.  I rarely have the chance to put a lot 
of time into libtool, and things will slow down considerably again now if my 
Internet connection really is back to (something like) normal again.  I have 
another 20 or so patches left incubating in my unpublished queue, and I will be 
done for now after those are polished and pushed over the next month or two.
