There was a lot of addons unchanged since a log time: at any new release
I have to to create link with old archive? Mmmm ...

This problem was been generated by a ancestral imperfection in the
concept of addon: we have to adopt a true object-programming philosophy,
embedding in the addon all code required. In this case, any addons release
should work with any loader (first disk).

Actually, this is partially true, because any addon comes with a command
bin/prolog: Setup run this command, after unpacking.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
