This is why it's good to have the various MLM authors on the list!

They'll always have the most up-to-date information on the packages they
maintain.  (This is also why I qualify anything about an MLM that isn't
the one I write as 'to the best of my knowledge' or 'from my admittedly
limited experience with it'.)

I only post this as a note that I think it's valuable to have a
representative from the dev team of each MLM that gets discussed on this
list; I know feedback I've gotten from this list has helped with Listar.
I also know that I've been able to give feedback on what has worked with
Listar to other people doing MLM development.  (One reason I seriously
considered starting an mlm-developer mailing list at one point in the
past; and if anyone is still interested in such, let me know.)

And congrats on the 2.0 beta.  Rearchitecting based on the testing of
the 1.x version is always a good thing. :)
