Maybe we can just keep track of who uses what.  Let's see...

    IRIX 6.?              David Lapointe
    FreeBSD x86 ?.?       Brad Chapman
    RedHat x86 6.0        Jeff Bizzaro

That way, we can say 'Loci has been tested to run on the following systems.'

Right, and the Action will depend on what is selected: partial or whole

(I'm going to continue this conversation in another e-mail, because I want to
hammer on one point.)
