Yeah, I didn't feel that Dave was slagging any other applications. Maybe using
a rather narrow definition of 'useful'. If I want to use samples, I'm going
to look at specimen first. If specimen doesn't do what I want, then I might
consider using one of the more complex applications. I think Pete deserves
some kudos for his work and this should not be seen as any slight on the
great work going on in other departments.
