This would be most appreciated. Its difficult to explain to non-techs  
(read manager) that v2 doesn't really mean v2, and that they can't  
draw any comparisons with images built from a 18 month old codebase  
from the *same place* ;-)
(classic "it has the same name, therefore it is the same" problem!)
Thanks for pushing this along, if there's anything I can do,
