	Wow ! :-) you rock.

	It was deprecated because it didn't work ;-) if indeed you have it
working, that's great; we should look into de-deprecating it ;-)

	Can you send me by private mail the result of:

perl -e 'print ":".crypt('mypassword', 'zt').":\n";'

	Where 'zt' is two random chars;

	That's great; we should check that in. Mike Kestner knows most about
the canvas, having worked on it most recently;

	I think the mutex thing looks slightly curious; I didn't read that
over-carefully - but are you trying to have a re-enterancy guard ? if
so, it's far better to use an object private 'in-idle' flag or somesuch,
instead of a lock, can you fix that ?

	Anyhow; looking forward to seeing this working,
