Well Jez, whatever it is or supposed to do, it does not appear to be that well documented...!!!
The only reason I linked it with the latest Moodle NEW option was the fact both the Adaptable an Moodle used the word NEW...
Anyway I did say,
"...IF I am NOT mistaken..."
which was my way of saying I am not sure but I think the two are related...
obviously I was wrong.
