Oh, so you do still read the list? I was just checking. :)

These patches aren't final at all, I actually think I copied things
around too much as I have quite a bit of stuff locally that I'm
working on. I'm not even close to committing these directly, and I can
pretty much see that I'm going to completely rewrite the trio of
cache/be_files/db (along with package) and rework just about
everything, so that is what I was anticipating. Looks like I jumped
the gun.
