Thanks, Hal. The idea was indeed to "stick my neck out" with predictions that
were as specific as possible based on pulling together many threads of
discussion we've had on this list. But it took more guts to go back and
check your response and note where you were wrong than it does for me to go
back and crow about where I was right :-)
