Thanks for the report.  Incidentally, so far the only problem report
with rc-1.6b3 was a thinko in the documentation (now fixed).  If
anybody's discovered any problems at all, *please* let me know.

I'm not sure if there was anything as grand as consensus!

I agree with you that it should be available in some way to those that
want it; probably as a configure `--with-eq-hack' option or somesuch
(although at the same time I'm reluctant to introduce yet more
configure options).

At the moment, I really want to get rc-1.7 out the door, as it does
contain important bug and portability fixes over rc-1.6.  When that's
done, we can reconsider more exotic things...
