Looking forward for it.

If there are bugs in leafnode-1, I wouldn't know because I only use
leafnode-2 for many years (looking at my outgoing folder for this
list, I notice that my first leafnode-2 version was from 20020921).  I
might remind you about my favorite feature requests for leafnode-2,
though, once I manage to upgrade to the current version.  I still run
2.0.0.alpha20040122a, probably because I didn't notice any bug in 3½
years.  :-)

Full ACK.

Bye, Reiner.
