Thank you as always, Chet. Worked as announced ;).

I've wrapped it up inside an Arch PKGBUILD and published it in the AUR
[1]. I had to symlink 7 libs to 6 in order to keep the system working.
At first sight I find no issues, but do you think is too rude even for
a development "do it at your own risk" package? Are there severe
binary incompatibilities?

Btw, the new mode-in-prompt indicators are cool, is the text configurable?
