Yes, this is true, but you don't want to run newt with the other stack<s>
active. At one site we worked with we found wfw311 and newt in continual
conflict. When just running newt, a version prior to 5.0 <3.5-4.0 I
think we ran> it was very unstable. We weren't very impressed and ended
up tossing newt to the sidelines.
