Gaakk!  Paper-bag-over-head time.  Thanks for the patch -- checked in
and a new code snapshot released.  I'll see if any more dumb bugs show
up in 0.8.1 and then put out 0.8.2.  Argghg...

BTW, has anyone other than me successfully used the "sdist" command,
specifically written and processed a MANIFEST.in file, under Windows
