Wow, that's like the awesomest answer I ever had to a random question in a
user group.  Thanks!

I think my situation is unusual enough, that I'm not suggesting it as a
feature for general usage.  Although, I'm excited enough about this, I'm
likely to repeat it several different times, at different companies.  ;-)
