Yes -- I will do that, though perhaps not for a few weeks.

Another case of (too) little knowledge on my part.  I was assuming MY 
use of piuparts-master (i.e. test the entire archive) was the typical use.

OTOH, I have set of notes from my first review of the code of 5-6 
changes so that it will not simply fail.  But that raises # of other 
issues ....

Leave this bug open, and I'll come back to it
