Ah. I looked back through the folder I have for this list - turns out I
still had the message with the patch tacked on in the box! Yay! I'm
rebuilding the kernel (2.4.17-pre2-ben0, so no, it's not even in Ben's
tree yet) as I type, so hopefully this will make 640x480 work acceptably
on this iBook. It'd be nice for running MoL fullscreen, without having to
run it in 800x600 all the time...
