It is generally considered good form, when posting a question to a
mailing list list or usenet forum, to ask for replies via private mail
and offer to 'summarize for the group' later.  This may seem like a lot
of trouble for the poster to get a simple question answered, but
consider the time and effort that the respondents are taking to answer
the question.  Unix old-timers are familier with this particular bit of
'netiquette', but other _relative newcomers to the internet can't be
faulted for not knowing if no one has told them.

Flame me via private mail, and I will summarize for the list...
