The other interesting thing I found was that even though Autoquote2.py
doesn't show up in 1.5.1svn after building, it actually is in the svn
download. When I went to save the corrected version, KWrite told me that
there was a flaw in the file in that it did not end with a newline
character, so we'll see if that allows it to show up now.
