Gary,

Thanks for the info.  Do your comments re: the parser problem mean  
that the current interfaces are broken/incomplete or that they work  
but you aren't able to generate a new set for the GM release?

They just posted the GM version which I'm downloading now which  
should at least make it possible to see what's changed since the last  
beta as I've got a few minor breakage issues as well.  At least I'll  
soon know if the breakage was my code or the beta...
