Hi Shawn,

If you have not already connected with Wayne Dick (cc'd here) you really
should, as I think of him as one of THE go-to people in that area. I think
that perhaps Jon Gunderson has also done some work there as well (but less
sure on that). If I think of any others I will let you know (and don't
forget to tweet about this as well... <smile>)
