scarlatti: That really is the way it looks.
greengolux: I'm the wrong person to ask. I don't have the perfect method, and all my best techniques are variations on "play it by ear -- badly".
rum_n_sunscreen: I haven't. Were you hoping to persuade me, or to warn me off?

ajshepherd: It is the last of your guesses which is closest to the truth. Alex's theory (in the ensuing comment) looks sound.
