Would you mind giving a one line description here of what Cesar does?
I'd be interested to know as well.

Appreciated, very much appreciated. I spent all of yesterday failing to
get bpermd to work correctly, upon reflection today, since I'm pretty
sure I've tried all possible reverse indexing (e.g. 63-i, 7-i)
permutations, I suspect that I may be missing a line? Or something else
that I causing my module to behave close-ish(very ish) to correctly,
since it produces bit patterns that are usually off-by-one but in
but the bit that is off tends to move around the 'result area' that is
the least significant byte of output ra.

I appreciate it Michael, in the mean time, I will work on the corilis2
chroot script, I believe it is almost complete, just have to setup a
user-USERNAME.mk file that sets up the include paths for alliance correctly.
