Well, maybe I'm wrong,but as far as I recall, the IC libs were not
in a representable state in the release that OSE is based on. That
would be R4B in erispeak. So, we had the choice of shipping nothing
or IG+jive.

We're all eagerly waiting for the next OSE release with 
the new IC libs. For readers of this list that have never
heard of IC (the Interface compiler) it's a compiler 
that compiles IDL specs into interfaces that can be used
by erlang programs to communicate with C/C++/Java programs
and vice versa. Just what we all need.

Anyway, I'm sorry if we released a buggy IG lib that you
would prefer buried and forgotten for ever :-)
