Ok. It's a bit weird though, because this bug causes the whole thing to 
not work, so I guess that means you didn't test it at all? That's a bit 

But what's more worrying, relly, is that this wasn't caught, like, 
immediately. Is anyone using this stuff? Why didn't loads of people 
scream and yell about it not working?!

Ok. But then I would suggest that you change the FAQ because as it is 
it's simply not true. I wasted lots of time believing I could plug it 
in, as it says in the FAQ, and then it turns out to be completely untrue.

Will do.

If I sound grumpy it's only because I really really do want WSRP to work 
well, and to some extent it hinges on WSRP4J working decently, and so 
far my experience with it has been miserable. Is this project supported 
by any company, or is it more of a hobby project by individual 
developers? Any way is ok, but it would be good to know.
