	Nice :-)

	workben/ directories are random bits of test code that might be useful
someday, and/or are used by developers in the know to test things; we're
trying to deprecated them in favour of always-run, at-compile, in-tree
unit tests.

	Heh - hopefully we can identify which libraries to merge there; then I
guess we will need to come up with a strategy for doing that cleanly -
particularly each dependent library & binary will need re-linking and
their Makefile's updating to reflect that I suppose.

	So - we should do it with a couple of libraries first, and only after
some consensus is reached on how to do that - you're researching which
ones are best to merge now I think ? :-)

	Thanks !
