Subject: Re: running in the background and on SMP

Sorry about the quoting :) It's a tick of mine :). I said "kinda" because
john doesn't have built-in support for lunching in background ( and staying
there when terminal is closed ) ! And about that SMP, is it at least on the
TODO list ? I wish I could help ( I guess I can help with testing ... ) but
I'm not so great as a programmer ( Just started learning C/C++ so I just
know some basic/rudimentary programming ).
