Currently the OS limiter matches a string "winxp" with all versions of winxp.  This means that users with winxp (with no service pack) cannot be targeted with OS limiters.  The limiter code should handle a "winxp-sp0" type of string to explicitly target OS's with no service pack

EVALUATION Need to modify getMatchToken code to append '-sp0' to the system OS value if it does not already have a '-spX' in the string.
