Sorry.. try putting my name in the email or something so I know you're
asking me.

I think there was but I don't remember right now. If a low exclusivity
for the UD BTL means it won't get used with the RC BTL, then that's
fine. I don't like that string parsing code anyway. Suggestions on
what to set the exclusivity to?
