Oooh, I like that idea a lot. Solves lots of problems, most notably the
hackery I currently do with the searching stuff: The search results come
up with urls like http://www.vistasource.com/body, which ain't right, so I
do a bunch of munging to make the urls right.

Also sounds like work, but hey, I suppose it's about time I earn that
salary... =)

Yeah, this is the part of acquisition that I _get_, but just shy away
from for some reason. I need to get over that, because this is probably
one of the coolest things about acquisition.

Yeah, funny you should mention it. I was just looking at the web page for
it like 2 weeks ago.

And I like the analogy. =)

Thanks so much, I hope others on the list are profiting from this exchange
as much as I am!
