I'm sorry that you feel that way.  I disagree, but not enough to discuss it 
any further.  I know this is your (your == "you guys") baby, and I'm not 
looking to rock the boat.  So, I'll put this effort on the back burner for 
now.  Not that I'm disinterested, I've just got tons of other items on my 
hot-list that are begging for me to work on.

Thanks again.
