If have some good ideas for stuff that you want to see in this program you

Please use the -u flag when generating the patch as it makes the patch
more readable. Write a good explanation of what the patch does.

## Problem reporting ##
Bugs should be reported to the [GNOMEBGZ][GNOME bugzilla]. You will need
to create an account for yourself.
In the bug report please include:
* Information about your system and anything else you think is relevant.
For instance:
* What operating system and version
* What version of X
* What version of the gtk+, glib and gnome libraries
* For Linux, what version of the C library
* How to reproduce the bug.
* If the bug was a crash, the exact text that was printed out when the
crash occurred.
* Further information such as stack traces may be useful, but is not
necessary. If you do send a stack trace, and the error is an X error,
it will be more useful if the stack trace is produced running the test
program with the --sync command line option.
See the file [BUGS] for the list of known bugs.
