   Sounds a lot like what I said last week. :) And HPA before that. ;)

Yup.  I prefer HPA's wording, myself.  To remind folks, this is what he
proposed last week (and we got a whole bunch of folks saying they were
happy with it, so I have no idea why we had to revive this thread again
--- I thought we had come to consensus again):
