Hi Greg,

I'm trying to make sure Ken Murchison agrees with CUnit, and hopefully he 
does; Dave McMurtrie and myself are both of the opinion (I'm paraphrasing) "we 
don't know anything about CUnit but you obviously do and care about it so 
please go ahead", but we need to make sure Ken is on board before we go off 
and make his life any more difficult.


Kind regards,
