I think Ryan is just concerned that we bite off too much now and in a couple
of months we still don't have EBCDIC->ascii working.  If Jeff can get it all
working in a few days then great, but if he can't...

Maybe we should just let Jeff get on with it for a few days, and then see
where we're at.  A few people have said that EBCDIC->ascii isn't a big deal,
so if Jeff hasn't made enough progress (we can argue that one in a few days
time when I'm away :)) ) we stick in the EBCDIC->ascii stuff and come back
to the more complex solution.

Just a quick 2p's comments... :)
