Not for us. No. we need to what to do and what to change to make it the 
default. Just tell us.

Yeah, I know it does. Try explaining it to 10 irate Spaniards.

Thanks Rowland
No. That's the point. Having followed the discussions for the last week 
it seemed highly unlikely Kai would get anywhere near the RC1. It 
doesn't add a forwarder nor interfaces line nor warn you that after the 
upgrade to the RC you have to work out how to add these yourself. And 
lets be fair, it most probably would do if we built and provisioned from 
new. I've 2000 + users just started a new term over here and I want to 
move forward, not roll back.

Ah well, the air-con goes off in 10 minutes and I'm going home;)
