Thanks for the pointer.

Where is this linked from the www.traceloop.com site?  I can't find it.  Also,
why is the version number different from the binary archive
(traceloop-0.12a.tar.gz)?  It might be a good idea to provide a link to this
archive in the introductory email, for those of us who aren't running
Linux/i386.  You might even get some help in the way of portability fixes.
