Yes alas I'm sure you're right, and others have written to me to suggest the 
very same thing.  Indeed, it seemed too good to be true to me as well, which 
is why I solicited learned opinions rather than desperately grasping at it.

Incidentally, does anyone know the origin of "if something sounds too good to 
be true - it 
probably is?"  While I'm sure that at many points one wise man or another has 
said it, I wonder who said it first--and whether it might not have been a 
wise woman.  :)

Thanks Jacob.
