in order to be more botanically correct with the term 'thorn' we are 
renaming 'Cactus' to 'Rose'.  The changes will be made over the next few 
weeks, with CCTK_ functions being replace by RCTK_, the repositories 
moving to cvs.rosecode.org, etc.

As some of you will appreciate this might cause confusion and licensing 
issues with the 'Rational Rose' UML authoring software.  In order to avoid 
these problems IBM have kindly donated the Rose trademarks and copyrights 
to us and 'Rational Rose' will now be renamed 'Contemplative Cactus'.

We, the Cactus - Rose from this date - authors, are sure that you will be 
much happier with the new, botanically correct, nomenclature.
