You're awesome! Thanks!

Happy to look into this.

It looks like you're making F10 spins, then? I wonder what happens if
you try a Rawhide spin instead. Could you share your instructions and
code? I'd like to give this technique a try for our F11 rebase.
(At which point the difference between OLPC's image and SoaS will be
very small. Maybe there'll be no difference at all, even. ;-)
