I am more than happy to draft up a new subsection that
covers Marc's point about an alternative yet common
treatment regarding optimality testing.  But I rather
think that the wikibook should stick close to GLPK
documentation, particularly when explaining matters of
usage and interpretation.

I won't add that material to the wikipage for a week or
so or until most of the posting are in.

with best wishes, Robbie
