This is the assumption that I was missing (ie, that people are forced to
get the length from us).  Hmm... could be asking for bugs, but it makes
life easier for me.  <grin>  Okay, that's all I needed to know.  I was
actually going to suggest this as the way to go, but then I
second-guessed myself.  What can I say, it's late.  <sigh>  So I'm
giving up for the night anyway.  I'll submit the insert-upon-creation
patch I mentioned earlier sometime tomorrow.
