--Right now, I think PINES is one of the only Evergreen live
implementees, but there are more coming soon ;).  With Dynix's recent
announcement regarding Horizon (and the responses thus far on the
thread), I don't think it'd be unreasonable to give conversion from
Horizon a priority.

Just to protect my arse, Dynix and Horizon are probably registered
trademarks or trademarks of SirsiDynix.
