A Prolific Patcher! My favourite kind! :-)

The two files do not exist in HEAD as they were first checked in on the
validator-0_6_0 branch. They'll move into place when I merge.

I'm trying rilly rilly hard to avoid getting involved with checklink; for
one, Hugo would be angry with me for messing with his baby -- :-) -- and I
don't really know the code so I'm keeping my ten thumbs off it for now.

In case you were wondering why none of the checklink patches were getting
applied, I mean.

>- check-paths.patch: Portability patch.

Could you explain what problem this patch is trying to solve? Is it a "on
general principle" type thing or is there some immediate problem with it?
Unless it's a showstopper I'm going to leave it out until at least right
before I declare 0.6.0 final.

EXPN? What is the problem?

There is a problem with /check/referer?

You're right! Guess I should update the TODO. :-)

I'll add a TODO for it until Hugo gets around to looking into it (or bribes
me with enough beer that I look into it). :-)

Thanks for the patches Ville; I'll try to have a look at them ASAP.

That would be ISO 261:1973.         -- John Cowan
