I'm not sure what you're looking to get from someone responding to your
inquiry but from my perspective, based on what you've said, this just 
prolongs a thread that has drifted beyond the scope of the original 
inquiry and no longer serves a constructive purpose.  If you can succinctly
point to one, then perhaps it's still worthwhile to continue this thread.
Otherwise, let's just let it die and move on.  I think all relevant points
have been made already.
