"Question for Paul T.: how does Alex Kelley fit in with this discussion? I couldn't find him in the conversation..."
Alex Kelley is not directly involved in this discussion. I *thought* that this was a local mail-client thing of mine (MacOS continues to surprise me). My mail client insists on appending Alex Kelley to my emails to this list (even when I delete and manually enter the name of the list).
I am replying in a "new thread" in the hopes of getting rid of that artifact...
[If anyone knows how to fix this, I would be happy for guidance].
