Totally agree with you. Sorry not to have it easier in this case. We will do
as far as we can for this.

Yes, binary files for linux are actually hosted in openDBX webpage. I can
upload to swiki also. No problem at all. But they are uploaded because they
are know to work well. We didn't have the chance to test dlls in other pc.
If someone (or us) test them and we found they work, we will upload them for
sure (indeed, openDBX author ask us for ddls).

I haven't no idea about that, but looks nice. Thanks for the idea and the
help. We will look at it and see if can help us.
