Be that as if may . . . however, the current way in which EPICS is
supported/distributed/maintained requires that EVERYONE starts off with the
generic sources and build the system up to whatever level serves their
purposes. When versions kick up, it's go back to the drawing board and
start all over again. 

<Speaking dryly>, I doubt that the world needs *that* many experts.

What people *want* is more of an off-the-shelf product . . . is that such a
bad thing?
