Hey guys,

I've finally got all my refactoring work done for this 1.9 release.

The promised new SWMgr::getUtilModules() is now available as well, which 
separates out utilModules-- meant only for frontend developers to know 
about, vs. modules users can see and choose to install.  You can still 
use SWMgr::getModule(const char *name) which will still return utility 
modules as well as normal user modules.  It's just the 
SWMgr::getModules() method which we typically use to show to users which 
will exclude them from the list.  There is also a new parameter on 
InstallMgr::getModuleStatus(... bool utilModules = false) for listing 
only utility modules when showing differences. utilities/installmgr also 
received a few new options -lu (list utility modules); -lru (list remote 
utility modules); -rdu (show differences between local install set and 
remote utility modules).

I don't believe I am leaving anyone's patch out or feature request that 
we planned for this release.  Please remind me if I have forgotten of yours.

Have a go and let me know anything not working as you expect. I'll cut 
an RC soon if all seems to be working well.

Happy Sunday!  Praise God for His indescribable Gift!
