Right.  Now that this first examination phase is done, for the most part 
independently of the store's authors when it comes to our code (though 
HP is a contributor to SIMILE), we'd appreciate any kind of support 
folks are willing to give.  Our next phase on this front - moving closer 
to the scale we think we'll reach - is going to depend on insights on 
how best to optimize peformance.

And my apologies if my code doesn't look right to certain keen eyes, I'd 
be glad to work together to fix things.  I'm quite sure my initial run 
at this didn't render full justice to your respective applications.

Thanks for all the feedback!
