No, what you're heading is "I don't care if you don't like it.  I
expected you to not like it."  And I by "you" I don't mean that we set
out to screw Larry Rosen.  I mean that *any* procedure, *any* number
of groups, *any* categorization was guaranteed to produce
dissatisfaction.  I feel sorry for Larry, but I'm not going to defend
the decision.  It's reasonable.  It may not be perfect.  It's better
than what we had before.  The best is the enemy of the good.  Deal
with improvement and changes like a grown-up (not that many grown-ups
deal with change well -- but we're *supposed* to).
