That would be great, thanks.

Note that there is a fairly major change coming in to our run-time
portion of the trunk tomorrow afternoon (a snapshot from a long-
standing run-time development branch) which will overhaul just about
everything -- including the LSF support. The LSF stuff probably
hasn't been [fully] updated and definitely has not yet been tested
under the overhaul.

Never fear -- LSF support is a feature we've committed to, so it will
definitely be there for v1.3.
