Likewise, I see on gnome planet that one of the Gnome (or is he
Evo) guys repeated my wish for saying "Always use that account
when sending to this address".  One day...

Ahhhh...  But using the stable branch means that it's more likely
to work...  And you don't have to chase the dependency chain,
compiling 1.1.x is not a trivial task at the moment unless you
already have the entire Gnome 2.5 environment built.  That's a
small percentage of people.

But yes, we need to have the bits for 1.1.x written so that the
modifications that required to Ephy can be in there for the
release due soonish.  Yes, a patch for Ephy is required to allow
us to fetch the page content.

I was trying to use jhbuild last month but it broke even harder
than garnome.  :(
