Done, leaving text-below intact for those on the list,
response to your question at the bottom.

In principle, yes, but it will be a bit of a slog
figuring out exactly what the internal surf dependency

any of their ormish or session stuff. I would favour
keeping the dependency for the moment in the name of
expediency and cut it down later.
