BTW, I don't think the TLF code in SDK 4.6 repo compiles cleanly for player 11.1 I've seen
deprecation warnings about TLF using player APIs that have been deprecated.

Thanks for the clarification.  This is good news and bad news.  Good that we have some sort
of test coverage for TLF.  Bad because a simple fix to the build script is not going to be
sufficient to move to TLF 3.0.

We wont know until we get a hold of Mustella, test the SDK with TLF3.0 before we can approve
the change.
