The z3950 support doesn't seem to work for me.  When i go to
../cgi-bin/koha/acqui.simple/addbooks.pl, i get the following text:

Tools for importing a MARC record from a z39.50 server
   [z39.50 Search Tool]   does not work

The text in brackets is a hyperlink.  Despite the warning, i clicked
it anyway.  :-)   This takes me to
.../cgi-bin/koha/acqui.simple/marcimport.pl?menu=z3950, which doesn't
seem to have anything to do with z3950.  It starts with this text:

MARC acquisition system
Import into the breeding farm

   * Select a file to import into the breeding farm. It will be
   parsed, and for each ISBN found, a new baby will be created in the
   breeding farm.

I'll try to look into this and see what's going on (the
processz3950queue process seems to be running correctly).  Just wanted
to give you a "heads up".
