anXious is only for X3, although nowhere does it say this in the
manpages or package info.

i contacted the author (who is also the package maintainer) and asked
him to add one sentence to anXious.1.gz stating that anXious is for X3.

considering woody will come with _both_ X3 and X4, there will no doubt
be confusion on the part of many future installers.  that added sentence
to the man page may avoid some heartache of newbie-ish installers.

if he doesn't reply to my email, i'll file a bug-report "wishlist"
against the pacakge.
