1, we do NOT want to shipping openq separately from libpurple, you
misunderstand our purpose.
2, just as Phil said, this enable us to know which revision testers is
using, and help them make bug report more easily.
3, as you know, there is no monotone tutorial in Chinese, so i'm
trying my best to write one for developers who are not good at English
but good at programming. now, ccpaging is using monotone too. is it
not a good news to enable more developers to join pidgin project and
openq project etc.?
4, this script wil stay there till we migrate from mecurial to monotone.
5, the compile errors has been solved since
52b673726ba47e370199600825aae32d47e76d6c.  flos and i tested in msys
on Windows and Gentoo and Debian. running 'make -f Makefile.mingw' in
msys and '' in those Linux distros all got through.

Thanks all guys,
