    I applaud this proposal. I hope that if anyone does it he will post the
    equations (or spreadsheet) in a general form so listers can run it with
    thrir own choice of sigma, number of runs, etc.
    
    If the equations are written in a sufficiently general form, users can
    observe the effect of additional LOPs on the half-width of the
    resulting distribution, as well as the effect of crossing angles, etc.
