I just wanted to make a quick note that you/we are referring to the
*Alpha* version of SL 5.6. At that stage of the game, chances are that
they have not gone through all the testing. There are good reasons why
it is Alpha. I'm not saying the "incompatibility" issue will
definitely disappear in their Beta but this is just an observation
most people seem to be overlooking.
