Hi again.

Just to let you know that while I was originally going to release 2.0.2 
before month-end, I have instead decided to release it probably some 
time next week.

In the interim I am learning a bunch about maven, and I am tracking down 
some additional input to how to resolve the maven problems. It seems 
that learning maven to the extent I need is not going to be a 1-day 

So, expect 2.0.2 before the 9th of June.
