I'm really appreciating the recent discussion.

If you're wondering why Peter double-posted, it's actually a moderator
goof. This list requires approval of postings bigger than 15,000
bytes, partly to make sure viruses don't sneak onto the list. When
you reply to a posting without trimming the previous postings,
it's easy to go over this limit. Peter did, the postings were held,
and then he re-posted with less quoted text, and the messages went

Then the moderator, me, came along, and approved his previous
postings. Oops. Sorry.

By the way, another good reason to trim your posts is that there are
70 readers of the daily digest. They appreciate not having to skip
over lots of quoted text.

Now, back to your discussion...
