well, that's why I asked.  As I said, Andreas and I are in agreement, 
and it certainly makes sense from a portability point of view, as well 
as consistency with future features (snapshots, audit logs, etc.), and 
the final elimination of our various /proc locking headaches.  But yes, 
it would break user's scripts  - that's a 1-time thing, and I think not 
too terrible.
