OK, in that case I'll believe it. I should read the docs in question
more thoroughly.

I know you're a busy guy and such, but it will probably be less work
to point those of us with more time on our hands than clue about the
technology in the right direction, than to eventually do the work
yourself. Your input will be much appreciated.

I'd appreciate it if someone with access to a big list server can set
up a db2texi list. If no one chimes in by tomorrow, I will try to set
up such a list myself, but in that case it may need to move elsewhere
after a year or so.
