Yes, absolutely. I'm looking for approval for the code in principle. 
Particularly the change in the default property value on Solaris since 
thats the only change. Once approved I will of course seek approval for 

Also, I will also integrate these changes separately and in order. 
8008118 has been sitting in my repository for some time and I totally
