Err, wow!  Word gets around fast.  I wrote that up through about 1:00 am 
this morning, and I'm a little embarassed by it.  I was thinking I'd let 
it hand around in my head and do a second pass in a day or two to make 
it more respectable; but hey, I'll swallow my embarassment if people 
find it helpful. :)
