as an aside, i've been working with another non-FPC/Lazarus project in the last 
weeks... updating from an old no longer supported one to a forked and updated 
one... in this case, it is a php based genealogy app... the import of data from 
the old version to the new version took 15 hours to run on the dual PIII 800mhz 
512M RAM server... part of the bottle neck there was the mysql config and coming 
from the myisam format into the innodb format... the mysql config on that 
machine was the defaults and so not optimized for any real work for innodb so it 
was very slow... one of the comments i made when others were saying that it 
should have gone a lot faster was that if one truly wants to ensure that their 
applications are optimized and speedy is to run them on older slower machines... 
if they can make them run fast on those boxes, they will be faster than greased 
lightening on the newer stuff ;)

it will be welcomed with open arms no matter what you come up with... as long as 
it works and is fast enough :)

if i can find a way to time the process, i would like to add timing stats to my 
scripted updatelaz routine... i prefer to use what is available in the system 
but i'm not aware of anything for this... if i were able to get 4NT running the 
way i want it to, i would have this capability... this comment being about 
timing the entire "make clean, tortoise svn update, make all" run on this box... 
just for grins, ya know? ;)
