Thanks so much for the reply. It clears up a great deal for me. I've used the
CVS code before, but since we're production with 4600 student accounts and 600
workstations, I can't in good conscience use "prealpha" code in our student

Perhaps you or others on the team could give us some indication of when the PDC
code - currently prealpha - will be made a production unit.

I liked what I used a year ago from the CVS tree, but again I can't ask our
institution to go there.

Any insight would be very appreciated.
