	Sure! I'd be happy to. Probably not today, as I have a rather bad
case of the flu, and right at the moment sitting upright for any length
of time is rewarded with nausea and a blinding headache :P,  but mebbe on
sunday I'll be up to it & I'll pull the CVS and see what I can do. It
should  be fairly simple to port. 

PS: good job for doing this cleanup, this is something that's been needed
for awhile.
