Hey, whatayaknow...corroberation.

Not to dimminish the good work of the professionals on that project
(or the Associated Press), but I do hope that Della got (or will get)
some level of "official" acknowledgement from *the professionals*. I don't know
if the team will publish these results (or perhaps they have already?).
Della did an amazingly good job and with a lot of ingenuity (from
what I was able to dig-up from her posts), so that to "officially" ignore
her work would make the other's work slightly incomplete.  Particularly,
if Della's work agrees with their's!  :-)
Just my $0.02 U.S. ($0.017 Canadian).
