Good, that should buy me some time to fix trunk, in the mean time, I'm 
happy to run some tests for you, if you want, while your sorting the 
logging problem, or if you want the tests run on another architecture.

I'll be setting up a directory with a trunk replacement on the weekend, 
which can be reviewed and voted on.  This will be based on pepe with 
DynamicConcurrentPolicyProvider, RevokeableDynamicPolicy and 
StreamServiceRegistrar all removed, which I'll continue developing in 
pepe, when I merge back eventually, I don't want any Ghosts getting in 
the way, or failed experiments remaining in the trunk for that matter.

This should give me some time this week to review the commits over the 
previous months to make sure I haven't forgotten anything important.

Hopefully this will be approved quickly, so we can hone our merging skills.

Experimenting in trunk was efficient when I was the only committer, 
unfortunately it's proven quite counter productive of late.

Well I'll bet you understand the intricacies of computing much better 
than many other programmers, having learned when everything ran much 
slower, with more time available to see what was happening,  computing's 
too great a field for anyone to know everything, which is why it's so 
important we all work together.

The hardest part is, knowing what we don't know, when we don't know 
about it.  - Humor, I can't plead complete ignorance, just ignorance & fear.
