Thanks for the clarification.  I don't have BitKeeper access because of the
firewall I'm behind, so I'm relying on the public snapshots to track what's
going on.  Things move so quick it's hard to keep up, and I haven't been
following 2.4 that closely up till now.

OK, that sounds great.  While you're in there, any chance of getting this
little change committed to improve board-independence?:
