Thanks for the help and advice.  My system gets a little bit more
complicated than just loading one file over another as the compiled
files live in a pack file in a virtual file system, so I actually need
to redirect the file io to use the vfs.  I've had to shelve this work
for a couple of days, but I will have a look at Pete's suggestions when
I get back onto it.
