Description: The flashcards class doesn't work properly w/o the changes mentioned at the bottom of this page.

While this is upstream, I thought it would be nice for y'all to patch it because's policy is that bugs should be reported to their maintainer, however flashcards looks pretty much dead upstream and the author isn't reachable, at least according to this debian bug report.

Additional info:
texlive-latexextra 2010.19086-1

Steps to reproduce:
Attempt to use the flashcards class.

If the package is no longer maintained on CTAN then it should not be part of TeX Live.
I will thus remove flashcards from texlive-latexextra, unless someone fixes it upstream
(I've just emailed the <> mailing list about this).
