OK, now there is evidence of trouble. I'll see if I can simplify the
whole stuff a bit, given that leafnode-2 doesn't have to keep
compatibility in code when it can be kept in documentation, this will
probably mean throwing some magic away.

It will somewhen become the new stable version, but no target date is
set, as I cannot estimate the time I can spend on leafnode-2. Until
then, the alpha version is supposed to work well enough for many and
leafnode-1.9 is meant to be shipped...

Internal cleanups (Code reorganization), some missing features,
start-up-time. While leafnode starts quickly on my AMD Athlon XP, it
takes seconds to start on a 486SX25. That should be addressed as well.
