Thanks Dave, I agree completely.  I just hope we don't have to wait
another year or more until the TAG and/or TimBL is able to address this.

Like I said to Mike, I think it's in everybody's interest to confront
this issue ASAP (more so for me though, given that I'll be unemployed in
four hours 8-).

Thanks.
