What I'd really like is to have somebody make some sort of version
of the dailies, so that everybody trying to use it would be on the
same page.  (Then again, I just updated again after weeks of leaving
it alone, and there were no changes, so everybody who's checked out
the source halfway recently is using the same base version.  BTW,
I don't find this lack of change encouraging.)

I don't know either.  I'd like to upgrade, and have gotten general
approval from management, but AFAIK there is no documentation on
the changes, no assurance that it works, and so I'm waiting.

My guess would be that any competent rewriting would eliminate that
bug.  (Not that the bug is a symptom of incompetence, but that it's
something of a fluke, and unlikely to happen.  If the rewriter
knew of the bug beforehand, I'd assume it would be eliminated.)
