Hey Kevin,

   Yea, I read the commits list and use SVN, but I haven't tried any
of the branches.  I just wanted to bring this up (I'm sure it's
probably been brought up before) because I know people are working on
a new commdetector and I wanted to give a specific example of a show
that has done this particular behavior for about 8 months, 5 days a
week so that they could try to engineer a solution to it.
