Well I am hoping to do this with a small group of 
people shortly. What I ask is the consideration of 
the possibility that this be rolled into OSI 
procedure *if* it seems useful as we try it. If we 
do this work, and the Board still have to spend 
just as long deciding results at meeting, then it 
benefits no one. Certainly the main reason I, and 
I expect some others, are prepared to work for 
this and would like to see it happen is that we 
would like to see an improvement in the throuput 
of the approval process, and a clearing of the 
backlog, and some of us are prepared to work to 
acheive this.
