Hrm, reading through the man pages, it seems there are several instances
of this being required as a command line argument for the different
server processes. Would specifying this for the bosserver "pass down"
via inheritance to the processes it starts up (vlserver, etc), or do I
have to go through and "poke at things" until I think I have them all?
