something obvious?My understanding is that these data are being moved from the regional files to the backzone file.  It's been pointed out before that a compile-time option can be set to include those entries in the production output of the build.If that's wrong or incomplete, please do correct me.  In either case, can you please explain why that compile-time option is not an acceptable solution for those who object to the change?-MSK
