Hi Stefano,

thanks for the debdiff.  I applied it and builded the new upstream
version successfully.  Some nitpicking lintian warnings are remaining
which are quite easy to fix (Standards-Version, long lines in changelog,
perhaps a manpage for mcdiff).  BTW, if there wouldn't be this warning
about a missing manpage I would not have this cool feature - just try it

Installation went smoothly and was nearly successful in taking over my
configuration.  The only issue I detected was that my "Lynx like motion"
was dropped and <PANIC> the entry was missing in the usual configuration
menu.  OK, I found it later in a new configuration item and was able to
stop panicking - but I would love to safe our users this panic.  BTW, is
there *any* reason to not use Lynx like motion as default anyway?  The
<Left> and <Right> key do not serve any purpose if not using "Lynx like
motion" so why not setting this as default and be done with the problem
while enhancing user experience in general.

I keep on testing this.

The only thing I would miss for a Debian upload is that somebody needs
to go through the list of bugs in the Debian BTS and close them

Kind regards
