We're not in full production, but have a dozen or so beta-test sites 
that we'd rather not jerk around since they have already tolerated some 
glitches during testing.  The request to have it show up as the default 
app came up during the  full production deployment discussions; I was 
surprised that we never thought of it before, and that nobody had 
mentioned it either, because it's pretty obvious in hindsight.
