Hi Bob,

Thanks for the reply. My comments inline.

The problem is that there have been other changes to the lib directory that
I don't want to pull in. ie other jars directory under lib, as well as
other directories under lib have been changed/added in that range, and I'm
not interested in those changes.

I did try this initially, but there's just way too many other changes for it
to be handled nicely.

cheers
