OT but FWIW...

That seems to be my blessing and my curse. =8^\  My posts tend to be long
and wordy, but provide background and additional information along the
lines of the "teach a person to fish" goal, while most folks seem to
settle for the "give a person a fish" goal.

I've received many thanks over the years, but a number of complaints as
well, and a couple of kill file notifications.  That's fine with me. 
Killfiling is IMO an absolute right of any USENET (or list) participant,
which need-not be explained or notified in any case, and I don't notify
those who I killfile (generally for consistently generating more noise
than signal).  If my posts are of little use to them, and only make them
frustrated, then by all means, let them filter me.  IMO that's better than
flaming, which really /is/ more noise than signal.  Meanwhile, others
continue to find my posts useful and informative, judging by continued
feedback, so I continue making them. =8^)

I've been tempted to try the "scripted external editor method" myself, but
have so far not gotten around to actually doing it.  I'm supposedly
learning Python ATM, tho I keep finding other things to do instead. 
Perhaps if I ever get that done, I'll choose this as one of my first
"real" projects with it.  Of course, it'd be more likely to happen if
someone posted a start at it for me to work at, in either bash, which I
know decently already, or python, which I /want/ to know decently, and
/wish/ it was "already".  <g>
