I have now pushed the patches that do all the clean-up I thought was 
needed.  I also fixed a couple of small issues Xavier noticed and 
restored parsing the "deltas" file in sync databases (rebased into other 
patch).  With Xavier's changes to the pactest suite, all pactests pass 
(except known failures).

So I basically think this branch is good to go!  It still needs rebased 
on master (commit 821ff061 makes it need some manual intervention...)

Any further comments would be much appreciated.
