Hi Gregg,

Go for it!! Marc and I can take a look at it again when you're happy 
with the changes. The versioned source object really needed an overhaul 
anyway to deal with the multiple domains of the DAS/2 server. I think 
there should be a VersionedSource parent and then children for each 
domain (i.e. VersionedSourceAssay). I think Marc started to do this but 
he was afraid to alter the VersionedSource object too much for fear of 
breaking the IGB client.
