No problem with a healthy exchange of views. :)

As Erik says below, Eris doesn't include this field in the ServerInfo
class, so it wouldn't be obvious to everyone that the information was
there. I knew because I wrote the original cyphesis code that exports the
record. I'm not sure why James missed it out when he was implementing Eris,
but I can only assume he didn't think it would be relevant.

Thanks, that would be useful. Do you know for sure where the cyphesis logs
are going? I assume you are running it in daemon mode, in which case they
will be sent to syslog, but depending on how your syslogd is configured,
they may not actually be written to files.
