Flattery will get you nowhere ;-)

Especially as you seem to have conceeded Alaric's point. I'm sure you 
remember that our big problem benchmarking our super-spiffy high- 
performance XML-munging network intermediary was the fact that we 
didn't have enough link capacity and weren't in a position to switch 
our infrastructure over to gigabit ethernet. A significant reduction in 
message size _without_ the overhead of decompression and recompression 
would have been a big win.

<plug>Incidentally if anyone in the UK or nearby _does_ need someone to 
design/build/advise on anything like the above, please mail me offlist 
... I'm available</plug>
