Eve, I wasn't listed as commenting on this topic
in the last minutes, but I'm pretty sure I probably
talked more than my share. I posted additional

interested party at least.

I have little time the next two weeks, but I would
be happy to serve as review/feed back to Mike as
author on this if it will help. 

(Speaking at the RSA 2002 Conference
in about a week and starting to freak.)
