Ok. I've had _many_ emails like this one. I didn't get the religious
conotations in my Concise Oxford dictionary... I checked in a huge
volume, and yes, a Gnostic (capital G) means a religious heretic.


New working title - Gnerudite.

(I like the Gn, the association with Gnome appeals to me).

Thanks Sergey!

If anyone has any problems with this, let me know soon!

Could a developer rename my module? Havoc?

Thanks folks.
