Thanks - that's a good plan. I now have the design for the
new "deferred" open code in my head, and I'm looking at the
3.0.x codebase to try and make a minimum neccessary change
to integrate it (ie. I don't want to break anything). I will
be running lots of regression tests in this area before
committing the code :-).
