Yes. This discussion should go to the GL list. Because of all the related 
discussion on the IG list I thought it best to begin here.

I feel the discussion has been fruitful though we have not reached agreement 
on all points.

I'll wait a couple of days to see if there's any more discussion here then 
post to the GL list some tests that cover this topic.

Cheers,
Chris
