Well, I'll look at with no pre-conceptions - as any prospective user would.
So if there's something special I should keep in mind, it would best
be in the documentation somewhere - otherwise I won't know about
it - don't depend on my memory - I don't.

amazingly, I can't answer that. The whole thing depends on a bunch
of plug-ins many of which have unobvious behavior. So I've found
the only real way to know what is going to happen is to try it. I
hate spending time on this, but it's the only way I've found short
of writing the code myself - which is even worse.
