I was hoping I could use stable and on a case by case basis add what 
I need/want (I expect there won't be much.)
Is that completely unrealistic?
If nothing else, it certainly forces me to learn more about how things
are put together.  That's got to be a good thing (even if it might be
thought by some to be a bit masochistic.)
As always, appreciate your input.
