thanks a lot Ron, I'm aware that it's a free product, and as such I'm really
whining about something that if I don't like, I should bloody go and fix
myself :)

as a side note, i've only been using Interchange for about a week now, and
only just subscribed to the mailing list :) it's a pretty steep learning
curve, but i have to say, this package impresses me more than anything i've
come across in a long time :)
