hmm... Ok, I'll check into it.

I guess my exhortations to write an O'Reilly book are coming to naught.. ;-)

Too bad, they are a damn fine publisher, and very, very well known (and prestigious)
in the computer world. High standards for publishing, well typeset (almost error 
free) books, and an almost fanatical readership.

Perhaps I'm just an O'Reilly bigot here, but I still think that there's a book to 
be written here.
