Subject Re: Request for new Wiki page

That is useful information, and suggests a couple of changes in my 
planning. First of all, I am not going to assume that the scripts have 
been tested with spaces in file names. I'll create a special space-free 
directory for my next test, to take that issue out of play for now.

Since I may be pioneering, I'm going to go ahead and propose an untested 
change to the patch to switch to Runnable for the thread creation. I 
would prefer to implement my proposed change, test it, and post a patch, 
but it may be a while before I can test anything.
