Hello Peter,

I am quite in agreement that we can reduce this number. The question is what
to reduce it to. I have inputs from our engr team on this ... see my earlier
msg onto the reflector but I am open for more specifics. I will set up a 
call to those interested. 

For any and all interested in having a conference call
on this. Let me know your availability. I would like to set this call to be
Tuesday, Dec 12 sometime ... tentatively 11AM PST time, 2PM EST for one
