Jeremy's proposed changes for the unified DataSource are extremely 
unlikely to break anything (IMNSHO) since they just move stuff around a 
little bit without changing how it works.  I think the only question is 
whether they are a good idea or not: if they are a good idea then 
making the changes now in this release is very desirable to avoid 
future changes in the network client.   Surely it should be possible to 
evaluate reasonably quickly whether the changes result in a simpler and 
improved user experience.  As you may have guessed, I think they do :-)

Many thanks,
