NT is expensive hardware? That MS .NET project is more ambitious than I

There's no way to find out your bounds *except* by going beyond them --
which, happily enough, is also the way to expand your bounds. If we didn't
think you were a perfectly wonderful human being, you wouldn't have gotten
commit access to begin with. Do note that Guido has yelled at people only a
few times here so far, and all of those on the receiving end are still
here -- including me. But then he was surely wrong to yell at me <wink>.
