	That would be an interesting test.  I would expect it to fail, 
because I don't think that the views mechanism applies to hints, and 
I think the internal versus external views would need to be operating 
from different hints.

	However, I do not know 100% for certain that this would or would 
not work.  It would be an interesting test.
