OK - 40 characters per line huh? :-)
Sure I like them short as well.

Yes - All the information will still be in ADS at runtime.
It's just that ADS's configuration could be pointed to other
configurations files as well.  The criteria would
be to avoid having users enter configuration
information in multiple locations, which
is sometimes necessary, because
tooling will define it's own
configuration file.

Anyways - I just threw it out there as something to be
aware of in case we come across more scenarios,...we'll
have some collective memory.  It feels like a low priority item to me.

Yes - I usually like everything in one place whenever possible.
But I want to eliminate duplication of information always.
So if down the line we start running into situations where
information needs to be duplicated in multiple configuration
files I'll probably do a prototype.

I usually always put the thread at the beginning of the mail.
I wonder if Thunderbird is doing something funky...
It always starts me at the bottom and I have to scroll to the top.

If you see any more where the Thread is at the end of the mail,
send it to me and I'll see what's up.  Thanks.
