I'm sorry your patch seemed to have slipped through.
Kathy or Michael - could you look into this? It looks like very
useful new functionality.

I've been working on making .deb packages for ubuntu and debian,
and I'm still in the process of modifying the configure scripts and
Makefiles to better support packaging - I'm nearly finished with this.
I've been learning how to use the dpkg tools to create .deb archives
and I have some, but I want to test them a little more before making
them available.
I haven't started packaging the GLI yet, though.
