oh.. THATS what that is!
Ok, that works!

Yeah.. maybe a clearer note. Now I know what "list" means in this sentence:
"You can also generate internal or external plugins singly, using
the menus in the lists"
I'll tell you that the "Clean Out" button is a dangerous button. Hit
that accidentally and BAM your code is gone.
thanks for your help, Tim.
Now.. .working on getting config/configure to really configure all of
this. I can't get it to find things. When I get one thing pointed right,
it negates another. I'm going around in circle ;-)
