Terry, there are *lots* of common problems.  The resources required to
solve them all simply aren't present.  Neither Jim nor I are trying to
torpedo your efforts by suggesting that tables aren't important, but
at the same time I think that "tables are common" isn't a sufficient
standalone argument to justify the complexity they introduce.
