Count me in! I have modem dialup, and a second machine with pristine 7.3 on
it, YOU never been run, so it should be a good test.

You'll have to give me some time to read through your code though, if it's
too unreadable or unclear to me, I wouldn't be running it.

Been thinking about YOU and wondering why it's patch download is so slow, it
ran so much faster when I mirrored the whole updates directory locally.
