Hey, thanks!  I can't seem to access the repository right now, but I'll 
commit once it comes back.

How would you like your name represented in ASCII?

I think the "ln active active.old" is there on purpose, actually; that way 
there's never an instant in which there is no active on disk.

Can I ask why you didn't like this part?

-output.  Also one should realize that such output will not contain lines

This sounds like a good idea.  Maybe -w for "wait before timing out" or 
something like that.  If you have a second to put it together, that would 
be great.
