Murder: seems like timsieved of frontend does not proxy well.

In addition:

according to README in timsieved directory, proxying is not implemented yet 
indeed :(((

I've found more recent version of timsieved in CVS: last updated at 10 March 

I hope proxying is working there ...

how can I compile the CVS sources: there is no makefiles, configure etc ... ?

Any help would be so great.
