Briefly, but my work-interrupted attention span
seems to have auto-filtered the REQs section :-(

Too many options for a beginning user?

Given the bloat of the SDK package

(offline one is >700MB, and contains
 Symbian, 4.7.4 + 4.8.0 Desktop versions?
 Plus lots of tools we will never use)

I think I trust those more than the SDK ones, so will try next.
Just wish they didn't have to be installed on the OSX disk, with an admin user's credentials.

After Apple ships the next big cat, can probably ditch 32bit?
(Old packager script can be hacked by anyone who cares.
 And even though I still have one x86_32 machine,
 and some PPC, the packaging burden isn't worth it)

Current fault:

Sigh. This is why I don't change things!
