Thanks, Klaus -- those are more or less the same questions I've got, but
you probably asked them better than I would have.

I'm not necessarily con-P, but I don't see any reason to have them unless
they provide a positive benefit.  So far, I don't see any positive
benefits not provided by the current structure, and I see lots of
potential for P's being negative benefits.  (Notice how I avoid referring
to problems? :-)

So, Leifr, please give us answers to Klaus' questions!
