Well, my reasoning was that all current packages that use ab_create_app
will either have one or two parameters. So by adding a third it could be
used there where appropriate, if it is using two parameters. Since you'd
have to change the code to make use of it, this wouldn't really be a
problem, you'd only use it if it makes sense.

Since you seem to confirm that you actually can call it with "" to
indicate an empty second parameter and a non-empty third parameter, I
don't see why there is a problem.

It seems to me this finding of !Boot and !Run files is based on $A which
would be correct in any case.

Hm. It started out as copy - which I changed to move after a suggestion
from you :). Maybe I misunderstood something.

I'll change it back.
