Sure.  But lsbcc doesn't care about that directly (though obviously it
is an issue for producing a completely versionable build environment),
so I wasn't trying to solve that problem...

I'm willing to accept a uniformily of implementation argument for doing
things your way.  Could you send me a diff against the specdb for the
modules and library tables?  I'd like to get my lsbcc patch in and not

Do we have situations like this today?  That seems really broken if we
