This assumes it is ok and I prefer we get posted test results before such a
change. Until we have this we need to wait until we all each do a level of
testing we are happy with. A solution that lets us test would steam line this.

I think this is a use case where something added to the RSB may be required to
make this easier. For example logic in a bset file would be nice.
