Okay, here's a big batch of updates and additions resulting from several hours
  of work over the holidays  :-)  Several of you (submitters) requested some
  feedback in your submission notes, and while we were able to reply to a few
  of the mails, many of them did not get a reply due to time constraints.  
  Have a look at the approved scripts, note the differences, and if any of the
  reasons for those differences aren't clear, let us know on the -users list
  and we'll try to clarify.  As always, be sure to sync your local copies of
  the scripts and support files with the ones in our repository before you
  submit any updates and such.  Enjoy!  -RW
