Too true. The e-mail post in question is in my reply to Howards post. It
was so detailed and clearly explained, that is must go in the main docs

I kind of put myself forward Dec/Jan, but the day job has taken over

that you know a lot about, then why not let everyone know and we can
allocate a topic etc. and start a "who's got what" on the FAQ-O-Matic.
