Yes. And if you check update.ini on their speedownload (which is where
we really get things from) you'll see that they've got it set
correctly to 4561 there.

Also, if we were to go "back to" we'd see that _most_ of
those carry the correct update.ini too (I do this for a mirror of the
CommonUpdater thing).

Fine. Just (temporarily) changing to speedownload and running the
update would've given it to you too, is all I'm saying.
