So then, Skip Montanaro <skip@pobox.com> is all like:

It *should* still work in the HEAD branch.  Back it up first though :)

The only change that will affect what you're doing is an optimization to
how hammie stores WordInfo objects.  So you should see the size of your
database drop by about 50% the next time you train it.

If hammie.py is working for you, don't use hammiefilter.py yet.
Eventually, hammiefilter.py will be what you want, but I'll make a big
loud announcements before I check in anything that'll require you to
alter anything.

The heaps of checkins you've seen me make recently have all been in a
branch.  The idea is that we (well, just Tim Stone and I so far) will
get everything straightened out over there before we merge back in.  At
that point we should have a pretty good idea about what's going to be
messed up ;)
