Yes, if you have a 1.6 vos the setaddrs I wrote will let you do this
as well, but that is yet a little more dangerous as that has no safety
net at all, even to my proposed change to vos chageaddr -remove. Btw,
should I sometime write a small patch to make a vos removeaddr? I
think that is what people are looking for and not vos changeaddr
-remove which is just a really stupid sequece of words to write.
