     Yes, we could do the API changes.  I have too many things on my
     plate already, so I am not going to promise to do this.  If you
     have time and the inclination, then you are welcome to do so,
     although I'd like to look over see a draft of the changes before
     they are checked in, if that's all right.

OK.  I'm looking at it.  I'll send you a patch and discus it with you
before I commit anything.


BTW. The GUI can now sort its working file.  Use the Sort Cases item
in the Data menu.
