I found that I had to change the MSVC dependencies under
<project>/<dependencies> menu by hand from wwwapp to wwwinit in order to
make it link correctly. After doing that I don't have any problems - theis
should be done in the MSVC make files that I uploaded yesterday

The reason why I moved the profile stuff out of the app package was that
profiles uses the whole of libwww - they basically set up all features.
However, there are situations where it is nice to be able to use the
features of the app package without including the whole library.

The reason for this experiment is that some people around here have been
complaining that they think libwww is getting too big and would like seeing
it split up. However, it is not clear to me that this is the best way to
proceed and I would certainly like to get input from you guys.

PS: I have told the people around here to send their thoughts to this list
as this is the authoritative place for all libwww discussions. Libwww is
truly OSS meaning that we work by rough consensus.

Most certainly - I appreciate it very much!
