      First rule of releasing software: release it ;) Doing last minute
      patches is very dangerous and as you saw the "one last patch"
      stretched 2.7.1 for a few months! ;)

      You bet! I need to actually turn on my brain though for the exception

      BTW, I actually prefer full files not changes. I have tkdiff, which
      does a great job of telling me the changes whereas patch just says
      "uh, i can't apply the patch" when my files change. Inevitably my
      files will change before I can get to the patch ;)

      Ric, how about you freshen your dev branch and apply Michael's changes
      to check it out. Then I can take a look at the Java part etc...
