Thanks for your response.  My general feeling all along was that this is a
bad idea.  But, my co-worker is adamant, and I really didn't have much in
the way of a response for him when he asked "why is it a bad idea?"

If it's not too much trouble, could you possibly elaborate just a little
more on this? Unfortunately, I'm not enough of a cvs whiz to see exactly
why this is obvious.  And I would really like to have some solid answers
the people here, who want to to this.

Thanks a bunch!
