Don't know about anybody else...but I would never be able to do this. I
have a fixed strategy....Find a product...lurk on mailing
list...research subject depending upon time you have...ask Q on mailing
list....do default install like everyone else...ask Q whenever get
stuck..u get answers fast bcos its like everyone else...get competent on
the product...by this time your lurking has got you several different
approaches...try them...get better on product...and build your own
approach ;-)

I am a brain lazy guy...never think if I can avoid it ;-) This approach
is definitely not for me...it would take a thinker & a strategist...not
a lazybones like me ;-((

Best regards.
