Release 0.04, module version 0.03. I can't quite recall why I thought such 
a versioning scheme was worthwhile, but there you go ;) (I suspect it may 
have had something to do with the accompanying tools changing, but the 
module remaining the same).

There is a known issue with some binaries causing system freezes which 
I've not had time to get to the bottom of. However, there is a module 
version 0.04 - http://moose.mine.nu:6888/el004.zip which has been 
rewritten in C, so is somewhat more maintainable. This does, however, have 
the same issues as 0.03 (which I suspect are to do with wimpslot 
resizing, but I've no hard evidence for this)
