And you would be absolutely right.  Since John developed the 
requirements document in concert with engineering management to meet the 
requirements we wanted (PAVE PAWS immunization, support SDX, etc.) 
aren't we glad that we have followed this procedure?  We will again.

Let me know if you receive two copies of this email.  If you did, you 
are a member of the group.  A CAVEAT:  YOU MUST POST FROM THE ACCOUNT ON 
WHICH YOU RECEIVE THIS EMAIL.  It has to have some identifier to go by.
