Thank you!  That was *exactly* the kind of direction I needed to write
this.  I didn't have the vision of what kind of question users are
asking.  I'll write that up soon (maybe tomorrow; I'm at home now)
and post here when it's up.

If you see what I write and realize that something else should
be added to the list, by all means tell me.
