FWIW I must echo Justin's sentiment: there's quite a few TLPs out
there that prove
to be far from ideal role models for the podlings. In fact, even in my
own case, I was
looking at a few examples that proved to be an unfortunate choice of
'prior art'.


P.S. Justin, I don't think we thank you enough for your diligence
around these areas. So. THANK YOU!!!!
