Small correction: type=sourcelib isn't necessarily complicated nor does 
it use a pre-build, but does require a dsss install phase.  Like you say 
Frank, it may just be easier to use the -I flag for now.  But, my 
original point was that if dsss gets an efficiency and speed increase 
with it's next update, then we may be able to move back to lib or 
sourcelib types.  Software/Library version control would also be a good 
addition to dsss.
