Thanks for the responses on this topic. Confirming my own suspicions, all
respondents on my question about punctuation conventions in the UK uttered
an unqualified nyet to the use of a comma between a subject and its verb
(that is, unless there is an intervening phrase or clause delimited on both
ends by commas).
