I'm sorry if I mislead you.  I'm not averse to modifying the Continuum
process, and I do indeed have the appropriate account permissions to do
so.  At the moment, however, I just lack experience with Continuum.  I
just wanted to know if anyone could provide a quick answer before I  
digging deeper.  I also didn't want to assume that I own it, so I left  
as an unassigned issue on the table.
