The users of Apple OS X, Linux and Windows are the mountains from which come the
water which MacPorts and software writers need in order to exist… :-)

Well, whatever…

I'm getting there. I can complete a crash report and get it to Bugzilla. I need to add
code to check the Bugzilla software version and adopt the correct security method
if it is a version that no longer uses cookies.

After that I want to test the KWallet support in Dr K, with and without your changes to
use OS X Keychain, and finally whether it is possible to get into the debugger interactively,
if that is what you were suggesting.

All this is if https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/119498/ ever gets a "Ship It"…

Cheers, Ian W.
