I just saw your checkin. To me, it looks like a pretty big change to the
editor. There are six separate "if (uc->resource_walk)" tests. To me, that
means that six new alternate code paths have been introduced. While it
happens to "fit in" with the editor, I don't see it as "almost no change".

*shrug*

When the walker function comes around, then we can clean the stuff up.
