Thanks for getting back to me. I've noticed that the addons form part
of the package (which is why I upgraded to 2.2 and found the Paragraph
problem....), which I think is a good move, especially if it means the
distro's will start to include it in their package management.

If maintaining separate setup files for the "stand alone" addons isn't
practical now that it's officially part of the package, then making the
last revision pre-rearrangement available could be arranged to help out
people still using older versions?
