Thank you.  For testing and updating the Wiki. :)

When you get a chance, check virtex on the head.  I had
been working to make every bsp provide a bsp_get_work_area()
and could have broken any BSP.

On a positive note, you now have the option to have the
workspace and c program heap be combined into a single
memory pool.  I used this with unlimited on a 64 MB PC to
create almost 10000 tasks. :)
