If this has been repeated elsewhere than sorry for the re-post.

The resolver still needs a bit of work before it's ready.

Handling of the || () in ROOT!=/ via the -K option is not in that 
good of shape in 2.1_NXX and can't really be used. Till that's

Other than that I'm quite pleased with many aspects of 2.1
