Subject Re: [IBO] Improved IB_Action, need your opinion to complete the work

I'm in the process of putting out a patch right now.
If you send me your modified files I will try and have them merged in.

I prefer to keep these similar in interface to the existing xxxxBar

Its a good idea to always start your changes with as current a version as
possible but I don't necessarily require it. I am pretty careful when I
merge in other people's changes. Also, please be sure to include your
credits in the header of the source files.

I'm grateful for your help and I too find it amazing that Borland and many
other 3rd party component vendors are not more intent on considering quality
bug fixes and enhancements which come in from the consumers.
