Good point; wouldn't be hard to add an extra attribute. We're shipping
ut2004 on DVD for the special edition, though, and I'll probably still
call it a "cd key" because that's the popular vernacular.

As long as the vcdk program approves it, it goes through. If a blank is
okay, then it can approve that.

It's an xml attribute; just don't use it.  :)

I'm looking forward to sleeping soon.  :)
