Thanks for posting this, Antony. I think you are right on about no
synchronous guarantees between updates, and code in external being
run. Marking as dirty is a good way to handle this.

There are changes in the pipeline to external, which may effect the
'req.path' as passed to external functions. I'll post to the dev list
when they are committed. Aside from that it is just good to see how
people are using external. Thanks for your db seq # patch.
