Agreed- but just to level-set expectations here, don't expect it to be a trivial or easily done thing. I looked into a bit when hitting a few Coverity complaints (which appear to be innocuous based on both my review and that of others who have commented on it) and was quite surprised at how far the code has diverged. That code appears to be quite actively updated and we may want to try and work out a way to keep up better than the occational "whenever someone feels up to it and has the time to" updates that we're doing now. My thought would be to try and make this part of the major version release process somehow, perhaps explicitly include it as a 'patch' or task in the last CF before we feature freeze each year. Thanks, Stephen
