I think the fact that the original question went unanswered for so long
reflects that most people (including my self) had no clue what the
answer was. My particular thought was something to the effect of, "Why
worry about something I can't change anyway".
But you are right, often questions of real importance (read: broken
stuff needing to be fixed) get lost in the shuffle. In this case, the
fact that a few legitimate answers did in time surface, lends
credibility to the existance of the list!
Keep on TR'ing.
