Sorry for the delay.  I've been traveling
and I'm still getting caught up.

That's wonderful and I'm sorry for the lack of clarity.  My intent
is to encourage you to use a specific purpose #define and since I'm
not up to speed on the code and don't have time to get there, I have
no other opinion other than to encourage doing what you really want.

No opinion other than please do what's best in your eyes.

This is beyond my knowledge area and any opinion I might render is
essentially meaningless.  I'm dropping out of this topic.
