Sheer (stupid) oversight on my part.

I'm unburying myself from a client "emergency" (read lombotomized 
manangers assuaging existential insecurities by throwing tantrums). 

I see Thomas Heller pointed you to his version. He shipped them to me 
just about the time the "emergency" broke, so I haven't gone through 
them. I'm glad to see you've been testing them! They appear to take 
care of about half of what's been on my todo list.
