My original vision for 2.4 was to be compliant with the LEMONADE v2 profile.

At this point is can morph into anything we want.  Some of the 2.4 
features required changes that I felt were too in depth to put into a 
relatively stable 2.3.

I'm pretty close to having the time to dive back into the 2.4 code.  The 
first thing that needs to be done is to merge all of the new 2.3 stuff 
into 2.4.
