Put it like this: I don't need to ask because I know and accept that
nobody knows. I accept the assurance of the IB people that it will be "as
soon as possible".

They are are a tiny and highly-pressured group who want what we want as
much as we do. I'm satisfied to let them get on in the least hampered way
possible, with the many things they have to do, under very trying and
inhibitive circumstances. I'm grateful that they are making things (like
the web site, the Linux Beta release, the IBX fixes and the opening up of
the beta program) happen, despite the difficulties they are working
under. I'm delighted at the time they spend fielding questions in the
lists. I think they are miracle workers.

So I stand by my tag-line and I don't ask questions that add more heat than
they are already suffering. OK?
