Steve,

You're probably correct, although I wouldn't know. I misunderstood  
your question. When you asked for the "best" way, I thought you were  
just looking for a way--but I also considered that FSpSetFInfo is the  
corollary fn to the one RP sent you.

I'm sure when RP wakes up, he'll educate both of us. :-)
