Okay, Murray and I chatted after yesterday's meeting, and agreed on the
following convention:    (03)

    "nid" for node IDs
    "hid" for hierarchical IDs    (04)

I'll try to get release of Purple out this weekend that supports these

support this new convention but old links don't break.    (05)
