no worries, I can admit to blowing my top last night, long day.  We'll
figure something out.  Taking a step back my core concerns are code to
which no one is responsible and what to do about that code.  _especially_
if its still in use somewhere.  It actually complicated the move away from
elvis quite a bit and I want to make sure that doesn't happen again.

We can look at that philosophically and practically.
