Done.  I hereby welcome myself aboard 8^) I've read the archives, as well.

Ok, I can provide some of that.  I will implement whatever code I end up
with (see below) on some representative lists at our site.

That would be fine.  Timing is going to be a little rough, since finals are
next week and then I will be home for a week for Christmas.  I may not be
able to get around to working on anything until after Christmas, because I
don't really want to install it then go away for a week.  I'll let you know
when I'm back in the swing of things and devote some time to it.
