Same situation as Brian... we are a provider of shared hosting services
(since 1996).  Like Brian's business, we also strive to provide excellent
service to our customers, which drove me to dig into this situation.

You are correct that we'd have no business, without a "control panel" for
our hosting customers to use.  cPanel does an outstanding job, considering
all the piece-parts that come together... their 'eco-system' is normally
very reliable and well tested.  I also am a list owner of several lists,
and was personally seeing the effects of the lack of munging.

Thanks for your support and understanding, Mark, and especially for not
making us feel bad or looking down upon us for utilizing such a control
panel system to support our customers and their myriad needs.
