I guess we all put the 'here be old stuff' sticker somewhere different.
I tend to call things old if you can't buy them from the manufacturer
new; won't stop me using them though.

I was being 'safe' by using the lowest limit mentioned which was for OBP
3.0 which I now feel is pretty ancient. I certainly don't remember ever
encountering it so I guess you can ignore what I said about the root
filesystem limit.

Just goes to show, when you're waiting for an electrician to phone back
to arrange to come out to sort out a dead water heater, you need to
think a little more :)
