*Nod* Understood.  I've been poking around to find out more about

configurable, although the process needs to be sorted out and
documented.  We may not have an ideal solution figured out for this
prior to the release, though.

Jim indicated that he thought they could, and should.  I don't know if
anyones looked into them recently though.
