Andrew isn't (I don't think) but the programming work I was doing was 
requested by Andrew . . . he uses equal for this - he has to, what 
other standard could be applied unambiguously? I was at the foundry 
on Wednesday discussing this and other matters with him.

I seem to have put the cat among the pigeons with that little 
spreadsheet, which wasn't the intention at all, I just (no pun 
intended!) thought it might be useful.
