John, thank you very much for mfc'ing those nice mfi- and mptutil!
It's interesting to know if this can be mfc'ed to 6 safely in principle,
without breaking some of existing interfaces.
I tried to use both on 6, and my experience was quite successful.

Please don't forget to change it to 7.3.
Thank you again!
