	Thanks for the response and the explanation.

	However, if you don't mind, this raises another question.  Why then,  
if Interchange runs as a daemon, does it need Perl at all?  I thought  
the idea of Perl was to do all the heavy lifting.  Does Interchange  
use just a subset of Perl?

	I guess I want to know this because I'm having a heck of a time  
getting Interchange installed on my MacBook Pro.  I'm running a  
threaded version of Perl 5.8.6, which I know is frowned upon, but  
according to the docs, it should run just fine for testing purposes.

	It gets to this point and then Perl hangs:

not ok 2

	Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I can't wait to try this  
out! =;)

Thanks again,
