what i intended here was that my own frustration with open source projects where somethings were so broken on IRIX, that by the time I fixed i it someone had either already replaced it entirely (or deprecated it), or it was fixed by accident, or something else turned out to be even more broken that was more important. Point being the work that dexter has put into yafray should be applied to the CVS and maintained by yafray.org (nobody should break it by virtue of being commited to the codebase) so we can continue to use a MIPSPRO binary without having to reowork it everytime a new release comes out.

the point here was that regardless of the absolute value of bittorrent (which is not being argued, it's a neat concept no argument) it's a fact that it's use by entertainment trading users has relegated it to the 'bad/evil software' category by large business. my companies webfilter at work not only does not allow use of bittorent, i can't even visit the site to download it. which means yafray is inaccessible to me at work. when i'm at home i use IRIX and don't want to deal with downloading software (bittorrent) only because one other peice of software needs it - therefore, since i want to use yafray at home, and i use IRIX i want to yafray to be packaged in something that is directly usable by irix, zip or .Z is prefered.
ok, enough talk; on with the party!!!!
