I've been using the updated version for quite awhile now, both from
source and with the new py2exe Windows binary.  We wrang out a couple of
minor bugs early on, but I haven't had any problems with it in several

Haven't tried the bug report feature, so can't give you a read on the
stability there.

It's the version in the sandbox subdirectory in py2exe CVS.  There
currently isn't a binary install that I know of, but I'm sure someone
could throw one together if needed.  I've been meaning to do it myself
so I can put it on my computer at home, but just haven't gotten around
to it.

On an at best partially related aside, if/when we redo the release
branching could we possibly do something with the version numbering in
Version.py?  It seems a bit confusing to have a completely different
version number for every app, especially when they appear to be totally
unrelated to the "1.0a7" type release numbering.
