Hi Vlad,
        I've made diff -Naur between abi-0.7.11 and wv-0.7.11 and freshly
checked out abi and wv.

I put these on my anonymous ftp server. You can download them at:


Even gzipped these patches weigh in at 333 kbytes and 83 kbytes
respectively so I can't email them to you.

If other CVS challenged developers need special help please let me know.
