  There's been some traffic off-list on this area, so I'll expand a
little on what I'm looking for here:

  I agree.

  I understand your intent and am willing to allow that aspect of
the thread as long as the following remain true:

    -- No he_said/she_said.

    -- No I'm_right/You're_wrong.

    -- No egos/personalities ala: "But it wasn't fair!", "He doesn't
       like me!"

  I have no problem with using this case for a sample dissection.
My concern is signal, both short term for this thread, and long term
in the effects it will have on future threads.

  Certainly, but with the above caveats.
