thanks for the encouragement. In fact, I've always found the atmosphere 
on this list exceptionally encouraging. My commit reluctance, I guess, 
was less related to a lack of confidence in my changes but more of a 
process thing (just do it). I'll fix this, promised :-)

Thanks, sounds great! There are so many areas in which we can cooperate 
(in addition to the ones we already discussed, the SAR and OSGi 
packaging come to mind), it would be a waste if we didn't.
