Given that this post is drawn directly from an existing discussion here on the Forum, we’ll do comments a little differently. I’d like to recommend that interested readers go to the full, original discussion linked below and contribute there. I want to especially give @MattC the opportunity for his responses to @OldTimer to be read in full. If readers want to comment on that discussion, they are free to do so.
