Exactly. Epic does this with UT2004 servers. Occasionally you get some 
moron on the list who rants about how he shouldn't have to test Epic's code 
for them, but we quickly shoot those guys down. They don't understand how 
good they have it. There are also 3 Epic employees on the list who have the 
authority to answer questions and speak candidly. (One is our own Ryan 
Gordon, Linux porter of the BF1942 server, and maintainer of the Linux and 
Mac ports for the UT2004 server.) How I long for other publishers to follow 
Epic's lead.
