    * Records are now "help open" when a run is stopped. When the next run
      is started, a check is made to see if the files
      (/project/$pid/exp/$eid) have changed, and if so a new version of the
      archive is committed before the next run is started.
    
    * Change the way swapmod is handled within an instance. A new option
      on the ShowExp page called Modify Resources. The intent is to allow
      an instance to be modified without having to start and stop runs,
      which tends to clutter things up, according to our user base. So, if
      you are within a run, that run is reset (reused) after the swapmod is
      finished. You can do this as many times as you like. If you are
      between runs (last operation was a stoprun), do the swapmod and then
      "speculatively" start a new run. Subsequent modifies reuse the that
      run again, as above.
    
      I think this is what Kevin was after ... there are some UI issues
      that may need to be resolved, will wait to hear what people have to
      say.
    
    * Revising a record is now supported. Export, change in place, and
      then use the Revise link on the ShowRun page. Currently this has to
      happen from the export directory on ops, but eventually allow an
      upload (to correspond to downloaded exports)
    
    * Check to see if export already exists, and give warning. Added a
      checkbox that allows user to overwrite the export.
    
    * A bunch of minor UI changes to the various template pages.
