That seems the right thing to me. Moving precipitously on the CatchIO
situation is a bad idea, and I look forward to a  resolution of it
that does the right thing on a more sound and thoughtful timescale. In
the meantime, a catchIO (or invert, or morph, or whatever) instance
for CGI in a separate (non-HP) package seems a reasonable solution.
