    Thanks. I'm not sure if my run last night would have picked that up.
I started it at 21:42 CST.

    I'm assuming "eventually" means that I shouldn't start right now.
You're only updating cw-tools.jam and not cw-9_3-tools.jam for now,
right Rene?

    How about I try to get the benefit of both? I'll switch to using
incremental for my runs throughout the week, but I'll do a full run once
on the weekend to make sure everything gets cleaned out and I'm not too
far behind in catching changes.
    Of course, if it is obvious that I'm missing some change then let me
know and I'll do a full run next time.
