Please wait until you see a complete implementation that actually works. I'm
sitting here quietly, following (and now breaking) the "If you can't say
anything positive, don't say anything at all" line because I think that the
more into the implementation details people get, the uglier this is going to
show itself to be. I'm perfectly willing to be proven wrong, but haven't seen
anything so far that's even begun to convince me otherwise.

Regards,

Nigel
