Point taken. Though I don't know how much community guidance you can
have received from a PPML discussion that primarily revolved around
metric versus imperial units of measure. Did even 10 people outside of
the board and AC offer germane comments let alone voice support or
opposition? AFAICT, 2008-5 slid under the radar.

do at least *try* to check my facts before posting them.
