Not, just update SVN and try again please.  Indeed the core1 stuff is
completely off-limits for users, but I hadn't realized I'd left a
stray non-compiling file in there.  Sorry about that.

You should be OK with saw, since I won't move any of the new work into
core/ until I'm 100% sure that it passes all tests and provides all
the old functionality.

So stick with saw, and yell at me when it breaks.  I'll listen :)
