I just accidentally sent some responses to comments in various parts of
this discussion thread that targeted only the individual people who sent
the emails to which I responded.  I actually meant to respond to the
list in each case.  The lack of a list-reply is playing hell with my
ability to consistently respond to the list.  Any who get emails from me
in this thread today, please check to see if they were addressed to the
list in CC, and if not, forward them to the list if you don't mind.
