Chuck, seems like the Horde site is unavailable right now.  I've got a very 
narrow window today, and will be out in the woods all weekend (with 
otters), so I'll try again Monday.  If you get a chance to check out the 
diff I sent in, and see any other changes you'd like for me to make before 
I diff against Mon.'s HEAD, pls. let me know...

Thanks, have a good weekend...
