Any suggestions for a prefix? I am in the middle of some pretty major
changes (going back to WDF again :) so changing the prefix now wouldn't
be out of the question at this point. Given that pretty much nobody sees
it if everything is working properly, I'm thinking XenGPLPV\xxx\999 etc.
No chance of a clash there.
