Argh. I'm really sorry, but after asking me to find someone for this 
slot, Karen went and confirmed someone else. I'm not happy looking like 
a flake, but that's how things roll with DB. (To be fair, she is herding 
cats from the Philippines and people apparently took a while getting 
back to her.)

I offer heartfelt apologies and if I'm ever in charge I promise I will 
give you a slot!

P.S. I'm not on the list so please cc me in any followup.

P.P.S. To me, part of the joy of DB is precisely the mental gymnastics 
that you get when things *don't* mesh, so I wouldn't worry about that.
