I agree with Pawel. I don't see why its so hard to create a wmii+ixp snap,
or just release a tgz of libixp like you do dmenu. I don't like having a
package require a library that you can't download without installing
mercurial. The "only excuse" is that you have a hybrid release pattern of
some tgz, some required, some need mercurial. I tried moving my ixp
headers from the old snap in and "making" but.. that didn't work. If I
have to install mercurial, I guess I can but.. its just silly not to stay
