Please don't commandeer another thread for your own purposes.  Replying to
another thread and changing the subject doesn't start a new thread.  If you
have a question that's not related to a current thread, please just start a
new one.

I think Isaac has answered your question.  If not, please send any follow-up
in a new thread.
