Jeez, man. Why's it take you people a month and a half to build a
simple server? <poke, poke> B-)

That's the only kind I have, man.

Agreed. I'm afraid that Dmitry makes a shitty test case for DMCA. As
much as we all want to have DMCA tested in court, and gutted there,
this is not the case to do that -- at least, let's hope not. 

One nice thing though is that other corps have seen us beat the crap
out of Adobe over the Sklyarov case. This should probably give them
pause when considering whether or not to use DMCA in the future.
