That's great news. Thank you !

Even if it can't be installed on a shared server, it should still be 
usable from a private one - and therefore usable for many people. Most 
importantly, if it can be installed on a local server for development & 
testing then that would be the way to go. The old on-rev client did 
sometimes suffer performance issues due to the round trip time; on a 
local server (or even the same machine as the developer), that problem 
would disappear and we'd have a very responsive debugging IDE for server 
code.

Thanks again
-- Alex.
