Just wanted to let you know that I'm still working on them a little bit
at a time and will let you know when I'm comfortable with them.

I see the pattern here. I applied these in my files, but I still get
false alarms after a fashion. I'm still looking into it (albeit slowly).
I haven't made a small test case yet in hopes that I'll get the rules
right and because I never have time to set it up, but I may punt and do
so at some point.

Thanks for your patience.
