Great you're going to clear that up, I am sure I got this all mixed up

Did they sponsor your efforts for 1.6?

You bet there'll be. We'd be happy to license your tool on a volume 
basis if it came to that.

Another question is: how large is the actual coding effort? From what I

old-style map list and different map names, if (and that's the big 
question) the remote console protocol stays the same.
