At least that is not on the first of April :-)
(raise your hand
     [like so: \usepackage{pifont}\raisebox{2ex}[0pt][0pt]{\ding{44}}]
if you thought Gmail was an April's Fools joke).

On a related note: do you have an idea when teTeX (i.e. Thomas Esser) 
or gwTeX will update latex to the recently released LaTeX2e? 
(Officially dated 23rd of December 2003: the 10 year anniversary 
edition, see http://www.latex-project.org/ for details. In practice it 
was released on 13th of March 2004).

There are some changes that may be of interest to others here as well: 
official utf-8 support in the inputenc package (without needing the ucs 
package), and various other updates.

I've been hesitant to try and install it myself, but I think this is a 
typical change to try out on the Yale package.

Please see <http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/> for list
guidelines, information, and LaTeX/TeX resources.
