Oh, I'm sorry; what I meant was: "what would prevent us from moving the
Jambase changes to the main trunk?"

However, it might in fact make more sense to try to move the whole thing
across to the main trunk. Anything to help eliminate the schism between
the old and new code, IMO... so, I suggest you spend a *little* time
thinking about whether that can be done. If it can't, just find a way to
move the Jambase.
