OK, my fault.  I have no idea how, but I did accidentally delete it.  With the 
subject line, I found it.  Sorry about that.  I certainly wasn't trying to 
ignore you :)

We're good.  The way I pulled it in, it will use the normal type from 2.4 
onwards, but it remains 2.3 compatible (though with 2.4-like syntax).

2.3 was released on July 29, 2003, should be OK.  So I'm going to call it a 
fact and leave it at that, though I will announce this on the release.  Thanks 
for the comments which made me catch this.

Best, and sorry again for the email mixup.  I don't know what happened to me.
