This is actually a great report, Bryan, thanks! One thing I was
afraid of when first writing the sed rules was not properly matching
text in old files, as I was basing the regex patterns on rather new
versions of them. I had to go through svn history to make sure my
rules worked with every single incarnation of the conf files... but
still real life experience is better than everything else. Well, real
life experience other than mine, 'cause (believe it or not) I *did*
check with every version ;-) Your report is comforting confirmation,

Good idea, I'll add a comment to that effect.

Wasn't there a song that said "Living on the edge!"? ;-)
