+1 to short circuit this and directly arrange the right thing with SUN; an

We've got every indication from them that they _want_ these sort of things

for you two to sync up and make sure there is no overlap.

There shouldn't be. I initially got the conversation going between Jason and Tom, but it stopped. I mentioned it to Graham at a JCP EC meeting to help get it jumpstarted again, thinking that it had sunk into the legal quagmire that can be the sun legal team :)
