No problem ;)

Fair enough. I actually have some halfway decent webhosting, so I will
just go ahead and host it myself. I will also list it at the main
places where Mac users go to look for software (versiontracker.com and
macupdate.com) as otherwise probably most people won't find it. I'll
also send a link to chmtools.com.

I'll go ahead and make a few modifications to the HOWTO and send you a

Sounds good, I am in the middle of a couple projects that are going to
keep me from doing the little bit of cleanup I want to do to this for a
day or so (I want to clean up the icons a bit and see if I can find the
source of the filename munging on SMB shares bug) I also really want
to automate the bundle creation, maybe I will (horror of horrors) read
the docs for autoconf..
I'll be back in touch in a couple of days.
