WhatIWantMost SVN and Continuous Build

WhatIWantMost Performing a little cleanup

Because of personal and family bouts with the flu I have not done anything new this week on the WhatIWantMost project. I hope to correct that this weekend. In the meantime I have some leftovers from last week that I have not had a chance to talk…

We've nearly almost completely maybe made up our minds to move south
