Sigh.  It seemed like most of that "torrent of mail" was more heat
than light, but I thought I had managed to extract the main arguments
on both sides.  It certainly wasn't my intention for the writeup to
squelch or misrepresent the viewpoint that I happen to personally
disagree with.  If anybody wants to submit a *brief* argument (not
more than a couple paragraphs) to summarize their point of view, I'll
be happy to add it to the discussion section.
