      Thanks for the update, Gaylon. I appreciate it and look forward to the
      day when AQ works directly with FT. In the meantime, I'm adjusting the
      FT settings from AQ to match what I have. In some cases, I'm opening
      FT and adding sources (per the FT instructions of 10 May 2013).

      Thanks again,

      Tom

(When the data was moved from nFS to FT, sometimes the correct data was moved, and sometimes incorrect data was moved. For ancestors who have incorrect data, they won't match your queries as well in FT as they did in nFS.)

This will make sure that these 4 event types go both to nFS and to FT.
