Only problem I see is that news snowballs fast.  I have talked to Damien
before about a variety of topics, and we spoke about the announcement
this very morning.  (I'm also currently involved in a f-marketing-l
thread about it.)  Would it help for me to volunteer to put the policy
out there?

("What policy?" many may ask.  See elsewhere in the thread for
discussion.  I'm just volunteering to get the word out since Max is tied
up and I am supposed to be pushing this issue anyway.)
