I have been doing some Mousepad work for a bit, mostly in bugfixing
and documenting legacy code. However, my wife has been very sick since
Christmas, and when Nick sent me in his rewrite, I didn't have time to
work on it, and told him to have a ball in a branch.

Hopefully, Nick's work will bear useful fruit and we can sync our work
in time for a nice, clean release for 4.6. And worst case scenario and
Jean doesn't get better, Nick will be in place to take over
maintanence. Win-win situation.

Nick: I'm sorry I still haven't looked at line one of your work.

<@kazin> why does php have 'echo' and 'print'?  Do they do different things?
