Dear Kai: Happy new year.

I am in the process of doing a chair review of path-vector and
unified-props.  My suggestion is that the nits can be addressed after I
post my chair review on the mailing list.
I am reviewing unified-props this week, so I will get to path-vector next
week.
Thanks,
- vijay
