I'd like to make a few changes to make it easier for people to build this
out of INN with hopefully not interfering with our ability to apply
patches from newer versions.  Does the following sound okay to you?  If
so, I'll go ahead and commit the above distribution with the following
modifications to CVS.

Unfortunately, they're not really suitable for a stand-alone package,
which means that what's in INN will be slightly different than your
package.  But I think the differences are minimal enough that this won't
cause problems in pulling in newer versions.

 * Rename ninpaths.README to README (I'm trying to semi-standardize on
   README files in directories that need some explanation, although INN
   needs a good bit of work in this area).

 * Remove Checksums since it doesn't work anyway after the following

 * Rename sendinpaths to and apply the following patch:
