The purpose was to give a slot to the Windows7 "Universal Network
Provider". But I discovered that that will require another total
rewrite, so forget it, for now. If I need it later I will label it
windows-only. Fortunately, Win7 supports the XP approach of using a
specific network provider. I won't even think about Win8.

just for debugging so I could keep track of when I updated
EnumSystems. I tried two very different approaches and this one worked
better and was far less complex. I can take out the date/time stamp,
which was essentially a note to myself about which version I was

I'm incorporating all these observations and comments and will submit
an update soon.
