Sorry... Slightly off topic....
But I ran into this today, while installing the new versions of ICal &
Isync.... And it was a little suprising, but nice to see that warning!
This is a feature that should be added, and should be *ENSURED* is available
on all the OSes assuming this does become Cross Platform...
Not having this "warning", is a large security issue... Which is half the
problem with Windows!
