No, just that I haven't fully "enabled" the records module since I'm 
still working on it :-)

So, for now you have to get it from the full path name.  Eventually it 
should be accessible like that.

I'm currently re-thinking what I was doing with the records array.  I 
think some more things need to be done on the fundamental array object 
in order to support nested records better.
