Thanks, I'll probably start to get into it.  It just seems to violate 
Unix's small, single tool philosopy, it's a bit overdetermined.

On first blush it seems like a separate tool crammed into the same

I'm sure now that I'm aware of it I'll start to see all kinds of useful 
uses and learn to love it.
