This sounds most excellent thanks.

As a side note, I left some material in there just before xmas with a note saying “please do not hack, I'’ll be back soon” but unfortunately had to jump on a plane for a family emergency. I’ll be back in SF in about a week and hope that my material is still around and wasn’t getting in the way.
