Thank you for trying it out, and apologies for the hassle!

These sort of "flag day" updates have happened from time to time due to
the occasional need to have coordinated updates adding features to herd7
to enable new features in LKMM.  As Andrea pointed out, this particular
flag day could be argued to be a bit less necessary than most, and again,
apologies for the hassle.

We will get this straightened out one way or another...

                                                        Thanx, Paul
