Yes this seems to be the case, I did it (much like) what I wrote
in the previous email, and it works.

In case anyone is curious how it turned out, I put my silly
game on sourceforge.


Still a bit of a work in progress, but the sound's working,
and it seems to be working pretty dang well indeed, so
thanks for all the help.

Not sure how long it takes the tar.gz to propagate out
to all the mirrors, but cvs should work, if the mirrors
aren't yet.  It's a bit of a big download, 22Mb.
