Thanks for the response.  Unfortunately I didn't see it until after I sent my last message.
 As far as the small patch to ease this restriction that's what I proposed in the last email
I sent.  Let me know what you think (I'd like to take a crack at writing the path, test case,
etc. if this ends up being agreeable with everyone.)


As for the second part of my problem (the dynamic properties) I agree that functionality may
already exist to handle this.  I will take a look at your comments plus finish working a possible
solution that I'm experimenting with.


Is this the correct newsgroup for me to be raising these kinds of issues or should I have
started in "user" first (so others could benefit from the answers) and then move it off to
"dev" once we agree to work on it?
