Note to the poster, who used the falsified e-mail addres wax at

Please use a legitimate e-mail address for a reply-to address.  If you
feel the urge to deter spam gathering through the use of a munged
e-mail address, at least leave some visual cues as to how to recover
the real e-mail address.  There is no need for anonymity on a
newsgroup/mailing list such as this.
