Sorry, Chuck, but I'm still not gettin' it...

Does it adopt authority, or something...?  Anyway, my understanding of the
LODRUN (which is partial) is that it does a restore and a call,
essentially...  If you have a device that allows RSTLIB, I'm not sure how
that's a whole lot MORE secure.  (Maybe some...)

Besides which, who's responsible for security of access to the LODRUN
command?  Each shop, or Brad's coders...?

IMV, that's a shop responsibility and you can go WAY too far trying to save
somebody from themselves.  *May* have cost Brad a sale, in this particular
case.  So while I may not understand the exposure, I'm not at all sure of
the wisdom of leaving this functionality out.

Welcome to comments on both issues, of course.
