Thanks for the cogent remarks  -- what I was hoping, though, was that
folks would take the rough first pass I had made, and actually edit it
to reflect their suggested improvements, and then re-post it to the list --
any chance you'd be willing to take a crack at it?  After several passes,
we might end up with a very useful short document!  We are all busy, I know,
but I was hoping we could spread the labor among a number of us...

Best Regards, Rick
