Sorry, this would not work. Since cntImage is _used_ in
polymix-3-guts.pg, you cannot customize it after use. The Server agent,
for example, will retain the wring/old settings. There are no pointers
If guts customization is needed, a better approach is to literally
include the polymix-3-guts.pg file (i.e., insert its contents) into your
copy of polymix-3.pg and then edit whatever is needed.
