Julian:  There was a massive overnight discussion about what the "rule"
should be, and I must confess to not having absorbed every last detail or
two (or three or four... thousand).

Could you summarise the consensus SA rule etc., please?  Thanks.

Julian: Could you get the SA folk to include your patches in their

This is similar to an earlier discussion about MIME::Tools.  MS is a great
product, but this business of its requiring patches, over extended time
periods, to other software can trip people up, and put them off, at the
first hurdle (however understandble (or at least manageable) it might
become to us n'th hurdle geeks).  (Get back to me about the MIME::Tools
one if you want to discuss it further.)

Incidentally, we've been running the new SA 2.61 in full production for
just over a day and it seems fine.  (Hmmm, that's tempting fate...)
