I like and thanks your directions.

Could see if take your 3.9 kernel and add .mcz load (if kernel not have)

As I have some elemental for driving images with remote regular Browsers
like Firefox, also could see of load the last Network.x.mcz.

And let  2b and 2c Sunit and test for people what wish do it.

Like more trial and error on 3 and beyond

Thanks !!!
