Amazing how far these electrons have to travel when you're sitting

Different path.  It turns out that the only reason they don't use
MAKEDEV is because it was slow.  We don't have that issue so will just
use MAKEDEV.  I lost track of the thread for Marco's tar patch.  I don't
remember if we ever decided it was an attribute or a file type.

I'm behind on my tar stuff because I don't have my info with me here.
