While not a bad idea (and I did think about) this is part of an NSF 
grant (I'm the PI - NSF Award #2004012). Since I want to keep getting 
grants I need to do the work (and I'd be screwing taxpayers out of their 
money). This is one of the smaller deliverables but I thought it would 
be worth sharing with the community.
