Wonderful - thanks

I have another question :)

xstreamtodev and xdevtostream are just streamtodev and devtostream

Given that the expert versions appear to be entirely a superset (so
the behave identically for all basic supported options other than the
usage string), is there any need to build and or include the basic
versions? The binaries are a few 100s of bytes larger, so its not
likely to be useful on the basis of memory or file size.

My natural inclination would be just to default to EXPERT_VERSION on
always (or even unifdef it), and have a single set of binaries. (I
would also probably just want to call them streamtodev and
devtostream, but I suspect we have enough years of habit using the "x"
prefix that its best to keep it).
