Hi Mathias,

I'm just trawling through the morning inbox and a blurry headed so not
in a zone able to contemplate complex stuff too deeply.  I will review
your changes a latter date though.

Was there much fallout from applying your changes?  Do things function
w.r.t normal OSG usage and the type of usage you need?
