	I think the key names contain a fairly obvious plan - tackle the panel
;-) but then I think you're right - nothing like this is worth doing
without completeness as the objective; eg. if you can just navigate to
the place and double click in nautilus - it was all a waste of time ;-)
So it's worth having an overview of the task - Havoc how large do you
see the scope as being ?

	Bug-wise; adding:

if (!foo) {
	... original code ...	

	is not likely to be the most tear jerking stuff ;-)

	I think a,b) are legitimate concerns, I'd leave c) to Havoc :-)
