My intention is that make there be a very practical difference: issues 7 
has been open since 2007.  Recently, Ian made a provisional decision. 
If nobody steps forward in the next few weeks to take ownership of issue 
7, I am fully prepared to close the issue.

If anyone would like to see this item remain open, I ask them to step 
forward at this time.  If someone does so, I will periodically ask that 
person to report on status.
