Aha! Thanks Graham, I thought my post had taken on a "dark" nature itself...

Right, ok. I'm no logician, but I do suspect that some possibilities in this
area could easily look good on paper but fail in practice, so I'm glad to
see the word 'implementation' there. So I look forward to seeing your
prototypes ;-)

Ah, that's rather a more optimistic response than I imagined, I feel happier
about trying what I suggested.

Thanks again for rescuing this from the void.
