Havoc, your original code is still there in cvs, but it's not being
built or anything.  gsu-test.c does it the 'right' way, by calling
gsu-helper. gsu.c should be removed and gsu-test.c renamed to gsu.c
and the makefile updated to reflect this. I didn't do this for my
patch as removing a file pretty much requires cvs access, and I
thought it might be confusing to just start renaming files :).
