So there still hasn't been a commit with the new cred transition refactoring. It has been a rather complicated process. Along the way, I have discovered some other issues as well. For instance, I'm currently wrestling with the Peer services concept. Previously, I hadn't thought about the fact that modifying bases affects all current and future instances of the class, not just the instance itself (which was my original intent). This was brought to my attention by a failing test. I'm actually not certain how the test ever passed. But now that it's failing, I'll need to rework that while I'm doing the cred switch.
In essence, there isn't much to report other than I am still working on getting the next commit out the door.
