Colin,
My apologies if I  am wrong about the netlist.  I was unable to do anything
with it  nor were any Mentor reps able to help me at the time. (JUN-July of
this year) I might attend another workshop later this month and am going to
work outside of their canned demo and get some "factory" engineers to help.
>From my comments you can see that I am leaning towards Expedition anyway.
Its price/ performance is unparralled.
