It was my analysis, but Sallyo reposted it from another list that
we're both on, where I had originally posted it.

Thank you for the compliment, by the way.  Said analysis is the result
of reading and rereading F&H constantly for fifteen years; I'm glad
all that reading seems to have resulted in something useful!  If
anyone wants to see it and can't be bothered wading through the
archives, I still have it and can e-mail it either on- or off-list on

Until the sky falls on our heads...
