Also it's part of the documentation for my product and so I need to keep track of it for that purpose. But anyone who wants to take the core of the methods described and put it up on a wiki is welcome to do so. And, of course they can contact me directly for permission to use the document in full if it seems like a good idea. The copyright stuff is just to make sure that questions for use go through me first....
