Sorry. You caught me in a cranky mood. I was on the verge of not 
sending that message and should have gone with that instinct.

Alpha's code is very crufty (we've been working for over three years 
to even decipher Pete's code well enough to even release an updated 
OS 8/9 version) and Carbonization is not nearly as trivial as Apple 
would like people to believe. The result of this ordeal will be 
/much/ more solid code in Alpha (both for real Macs and for Carbon), 
but it all takes time.

We appreciate that people are interested and will provide you with a 
spiffy new Alpha as soon as we are able.
