Well, I didn't think that I was 'insisting' on the idea, at least that's
not how I meant my posts to come across.  

Frankly, I've been rather surprised at the level of the negativity that
has come across towards this idea in several of the posts and I'm not
sure why that is.

In either case, your last paragraph, Bill, was the direction I was
headed.  I'll mull it over for a time then decide if I want to put
something in place and see what kind of response there is out there.
