Precisely.  And the "where" to search for an answer is what I gave.

Not the answer.  Not even the precise form of the answer.  But a (probable) 
solution space of feasibility.  I'm not a mathematician per se, but I have a 
Masters in Operations Research, and I am aware not only from training but 
practice that this is the second part of almost every problem - after 
recognizing the problem appropriately in the first place (which is what I was 
trying to make him do, that he apparently couldn't).

[About the religious private college...]

%      Actually, what it tells me is that they have information flow control 
%      more like corporations than universities, and that they should look 
%      there for possibly already configured solutions to their problem.  The 
%      firewalls mailing list address such things commonly.

Pardon me, but for what I understood, a firewall is necessary but
not sufficient - probably they will have to wait for PICS in order to
have a complete solution
%      Beats me why folks keep bringing in their own prejudices to a comon p 
%      roblem.  A shame they are blocked by their own fears and wind up 
%      re-inventing the wheel.  Ah well.....

Being a mathematician, I am used to the fact that it is not by any means
simple to know *where* to search for a solution, and this is independent
from creed :-)
