Oh gotcha! So you are saying that the properties are something that is  
a part of the executable inside the package? How odd.

Anyway, I don't want to belabor the point. The fact is, there are  
workarounds, and some with real benefits (such as default restoration)  
and such that will work nicely for me.

Thanks all.
