Actually "delete foo" there won't even compile.  You don't want to delete 
something that you didn't "new".

I don't, nor do I really claim to.  I don't think I have a single MPC file on 
my harddisk.  Pretty much all of that code was contributed (by Alan) and I'm 
not sure he's actively using it either...

As such, debugging is certainly appreciated.  :-)
