May, may not, perhaps...hence the request for documentation.

Yes, of course.  The very documentation I've been using all this  
time.  All of this hasn't brought about any perceived solution nor  
reduction of warnings in configtest.  Even with the potential  
confusion noted above, it still is that.

See reply to Andre.

Other than the include to my file, nothing.

Well then.  I guess the solution is to become you, or Eric.   
Unfortunately, we live in the real world, and not in Lalaland.  Also,  
users are those that aren't you people, it is us.

So I guess 200% my money back, right?  Wow you have certainly trumped  
me.  I guess anybody with a question or a suggestion shouldn't ask for  
clarification on items that are confusing.  We should just become you.

Good luck with that.  Andre is providing some leadership.
