that's one of the things i'm wondering about, like "did you uninstall it,
or just unload it, or did you uninstall it but not unload it? did you build
a new version in the test environment and test that against an existing
it's been days since i ran into this, and the only notes that i have on it
are that i ran into it. i didn't keep track of the recipe.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
