	What you say here, Kris, --and Chuck too, IIRC-- about sums it
	up.  I can see the potential problem, so maybe the thing for
	you to do, Richard, is cobble together a script.  In fact, 
	with all the hours this discussion has taken, you could've
	probably written it.

	And yup, whoever sees a problem is the one who should come
	up with a reasonable solution.
