They are "ready" and have been tested quite a lot already. I never provided
them because a lot of cleaning up needed to be done (presumably reducing
their size from the current 4.7Mo to something decent). But it seems the
volunteer who took charge of the job in not too eager to do it anymore...

Since they work quite well, it would be a little stupid to hoard them while
nobody's working on them. I'll provide them with the next version (in a
separate archive...).
