I can do the merge.  As far as working with all the engines I wouldn't
trust myself outside of simply running the existing tests.  Both Andy
G and Dave did a good job with their tests, but some of the other
engines don't have as much test coverage.

So, the question I still have is how do you make sure it works with
the other engines?
