In the immortal words of Inigo Montoya ...
I'm supposed to get the final word on a project I've been waiting for for YEARS. Much work, mental anguish, and teeth-grinding has gone into this. But it's one of those things where it's important to get it right from the beginning, and if it's all screwed up I will pull the plug and start over. Duct tape has its place, but not in the initial design.
