Duh. :-(

I didn't even bother doing a search-- 'cause I thought I had discovered
something Earth-shattering, ha. Or that someone *may* have mentioned it in the
distant past-- maybe once-- but that it was buried in some obscure post. Mea
culpa.

A fine idea-- as is your encyclopedic spreadsheet. I have a tendency to find
these things out while working on an 'unrelated' scene or idea...side-tracked,
in other words...but then my new-found 'eureka' tidbits of knowledge remain in
gobs of scene files where they began :-(  But I DID make a demo scene of THIS
little tidbit :-D

Now it's 420 results...
