Cool. I'm not fond of SketchUp anyhow. I'm switchin'. If you've ever used 
qcad, I'm wondering what you or others might know/think of it. That one 
works on my Unix boxes, that's why I ask. It's been flirting with me every 
since I've seen it appearing in various pkg repos.

Plus the screen is too darn small.
