I'm happy to review things, but should let you know I've been largely offline 
for a month due to Leigh being in hospital, and I'm still only at the tip of 
the iceburg on catching up, so my turn-around may be a bit delayed.  Per our 
previous e-mail discussions, I think having some sort of ideas list is very 
valuable, I think we just need to manage the list a little differently, and 
especially, manage expectations for the list :-).
