But how much code coverage do we actually get?  The problem with smallish 
tools, like what MH is built from, is that off-beat code paths can be difficult 
to exercise.

It will be so nice to get my VM test environments put back together.  It has 
been frustrating trying to keep up with the detailed checks I like to do, when 
I don't have all the bits in play.

And I apologize to Ralph for barking at him like I did.  That was frustration 
running over.

But we still need to look very closely under the hood at the sweeping changes 
that are being made.  I still think there is a forest/trees dichotomy being 
missed here.  I need a month to get my test environment nailed up and ready to 
go again.
