Oh, man, I never realized how lucky I was until I joined this list and started
hearing horror stories about SMEs. 90% of the time (at least) the SMEs I deal with
are quick to respond with helpful information, and honor review deadlines. Most of
them realize that not only do they not want to do what I do, but that *I* want to
do it and I'm pretty darn good at it. Despite that last sentence. &;-)
