I think I'm going to put "(Locally Modified)" as the author, and append the
'M' as suggest by Eric.

Well, it didn't start out that way. :-) I wanted to beef up the test suite
and this just kind of ensued from there. But I'm hoping to get this wrapped
up soon, and if you have suggestions for something that isn't terribly
complicated, I'm all ears. I'd like to help you guys reach 1.0 as quick as
possible, and if my time can be better spent somewhere else, I'd like to know
about it.
