Meh. The Transarc paths are passably tolerable, no need to invent a wheel
for invention's sake. It'd be useful to see what others have done to see if
my assumptions are close to what others do. Anyone that would be willing to
let me look at what they've done would be appreciated -- no strings

I probably should look at making server-only and client-only packages, too.=
