Part of the reason; but have you noticed how the v2.002 Mac stats are
racing up?  Neither the v2 or v2.002 clients have caused any crash that I
know of on my Performa 475 running System B1-7.6.1 in 20MB RAM with no VM,
but the v2.000 Mac client was dog slow on 68K machines and many, many
people had terrible trouble getting it to report *anything*.

But...  How come the Mac client doesn't crash all the time?  Macs are
hardly famous for their stability?
