Thanks Kevin.  Can you suggest any likelihood (yeah--I know--crystal
ball) of this occurring in the near (< 2 months) future?  I'm sure such
a change requires issues to be addressed (read: code changes) for the
existing apps.   But, if it is at all likely to be soon, then it would
prevent creating a fair amount of (IMO--excessively convoluted) code to
support a "band-aid".  Anything that you might comment on that
suggest a timeframe (pros or cons) would be quite beneficial.
