thank you very much for picking up that age-old habit of 
posting summaries.

It existed years ago on s-help and I find it is still a great
thing: I would not have bothered to read your original question
nor the answers you got, but I did read the summary -- and I
learned something quite interesting!

Maybe some others who receive multiple non-elementary answers to their
questions could sometimes bother to compile a summary so
that some of the bystanders be educated at low cost??
I'd be willing to do it for my own questions if it was at
least a little common.
