Yes I looked at it, it uses all the old client pipe interfaces
which are now gone. Completely....

Did you look at my branch ? :-).

If this gets merged first, then I'll have to do the cleanup
work as part of merging my branch. There won't be any work
from Chris - I'll have to do it as his code will have "squatters
rights" as it were :-). My code will break the build, not

If my new rpc code gets merged first (and merge is the
wrong word as it'll just drop over and completely replace
what is already there) then the build keeps working. Then
he and I can work together and I can teach him how to
change his code to use the new rpc interface (or he
can look at the new rpcclient and easily work it out,
it's *much* cleaner).

That's why.
