Bill are you getting a slowdown in compile time with this. It takes my 
computer some time to compile the library, even with oneatatime off. 
(actually seems longer than before). Frank is thinking of switching it 
back because of this, but if I'm the only one with this problem I can 
just compile it to a library myself.
