I have a cold right now and my brain's all fuzzy.  (I suspect I've been coming 
down with it for a couple days, but last night and this morning it decided to 
get serious.)

If you could send me the fix without the name change, I'd appreciate it.  I'm 
all for a quick fix before 1.1.1, what I bumped to 1.1.2 was the proper fix 
which can do an s/// after nul (and distinguish global from non-global 
there), plus making things like the append command handle embedded nul bytes.

Never bet against the cheap plastic solution.
