Just to clarify, not *all* of the magic is in the query.  It just
establishes an initial set of results, within which there are many
duplicates, redundant entries, etc.  There is quite a bit of post-processing
in the code which is where the verbose logging comes in and shows you the
results of those post-processing steps.  I would agree that the "average"
person probably wouldn't necessarily understand the output, however.  I was
doing some work in the scheduler area a while back and was using that output
and it only made any sense because I had become more intimately familiar
with the post-processing code itself. I still hope to get back to that code
soon, but work keeps intervening.  Darned end-of-year HR evaluation
