   How about auto-recompiling? Choose which version you want, and it 
auto-recompiles itself with that version only, so the others won't 
take up resources (except disk space). That can't be too hard, right? 

   I'd also like to take this opportunity to reiterate my very strong 
opinion that you let ppl create as many toolbars as they want, 
arrange them however they want, and make every possible piece of your 
client a re-arrangeable "widget." Like the DCC send (or was it 
receive?) windows in ViRC (or maybe it was Pirch?)... They're made up 
ENTIRELY of drag-n-drop-n-dockable "toolbars" so you can arrange them 
any way you like.

<SpamFire> you know what's funny?
<`ylferiF> Yep
<SpamFire> me too.
