Simon or Jeff had best answer your latter query on
strengths/weaknesses of each model.  I could hazard a guess, but would
probably be wrong.  !-)  I can't send attachments here, so decided to
put the draft on my blog and will revise as needed.  Feedback welcome,
and I need to make it friendlier and provide more detail in places.
Apologies in advance for errors/omissions, etc... that are my own
fault, not Simon's.
