Well played ;-) Actually, I gave detailed reasoning for this in my  
response to John a few hours ago. I could quote that message back to  
you at length, but I hear that some people don't like that -- and  
anyway I know you already have that email; it was the one you  
responded to, briefly, at 5:48:06 PM EDT...

I am not going to waste my time doing that unless there is some  
expression of genuine interest. Reading back a little, you may note  
that I introduced this idea only reluctantly, at John's explicit  
request. If there is no further interest I am quite happy to return  
to the regularly scheduled discussion of 2008-02 -- which is where  
this thread began.
