I wasn't trying the solve problem b, because I didn't see it as a  
problem.  Still don't for that matter.  If you're on a low-size  
device, it's an optimization that you can use.  I'm a little leery of  
using caps from one client to represent another, but I don't have a  
reason for that leeriness, near as I can tell.
