I couldn't agree more. BTW, Ron, do you use the 'I'd rather have done' form? It's supposed to exist in BE, but I hear it very rarely. ;-)

I don't think I have ever heard that expression, so there is a good chance I wouldn't understand it readily.

It sounds weird, but is supposed to be correct. ;-)
