Probably the best bet, in light of this, would be to look at the most 
recent 0.14 experimental binaries and the latest jaguar interface file, 
and check out the Pre_0_14 branch at the date that the binaries were 
made. I thinnk that's the -d option with CVS, but i'm not positive so 
RTM. This sound like it would break for any reason, Gary?
