        What is an 'overwrite' method?  In the process of creating a bnch
of patches, I've compiled the stock + the current version of Oasis usually
on a linux box, sometimes on sun, and as long as I had a GNU patch
program, there wasn't a problem.  As to the bzip, if you have shell
access, download it for yourself, compile it for yourself, and only use
it, for yourself.  I'm assuming that your isp allows you to compile and
have executable programs, else you'd have trouble with circle.
        Who recommended that you use 1.5 instead of 1.6? Granted, its a
work in progress (Thanks to G.G.), but I've had no problems with the 1.6b
version, aside from what has already been pointed out on the list.
