That is, indeed, what I was referring to as "a lot of effort." Marco describes as "very minor inconvenience." So either he's had more luck than me, or is simply better than me, or we have different opinions as to what counts as a lot of effort, or maybe I just gave up too easily. Dunno.

In any event, take it as given, that you *can* work this way, but it's not clear exactly how easy or difficult it is.
