Sorry to be a bit short on patience:  The conversation didn't seem to be
very fruitful, and I've been a bit busy bringing all the group
descriptions and templates back up to date on BALE
(http://linuxmafia.com/bale/), now that thankfully Deirdre spotted what
had broken the newmonth script for the past couple of years.  (MySQL 
inserts had silently broken, because at some point in the upgrade
history, I'd upgraded from 3.x to 4.x, and the latter requires COMMIT
statements before transactions take effect.)

Well, of course.  And I continue to think the jury was dead wrong:
Something that comes across as more likely than not (which might be an
overestimate on my part, as to the probability of Hans being the
murderer) is absolutely _no_ basis for any sort of criminal conviction.

(And I could swear that the latter point had been pounded into the
ground a few times, already.)
