In its own way, this is fascinating.  The responses to my suggestion have mostly clustered around "you're wasting your time with this."  The last time this topic was raised (by Holtej last October), there were a number of responses discussing the merits of his proposal, and none at all suggesting that the whole discussion was pointless.  You yourself mentioned that MO hadn't found a way to solve the problem, but went on to leave the door open by adding "I don't think that comes 
directly from Maltz, however."  I took this as an indication that the question was still open and further discussion might be warranted (or, at the very least, not actively rebuffed).

I understand that Holtej has a history and a standing with the group that I don't, but still the difference in the responses is curious.
