Heh. Please continue to bug me... I wanted to build one lately, but
couldn't connect to the build machine - I suppose the IPv6 tunnel is

It would be great if we could get Martin an account there, though.
I'm really looking forward to having resumed SoaS-on-XO builds soonish.
In fact, I hope to have joint releases for each target platform in the
end for SoaS v2.
