Arrrgh- Thanks Chris, yes, I meant to say volatile.

It's funny, I use an older email program that doesn't have any built-in
spell check, so quite often I cringe when I see one of my posts and notice
a spelling gaffe, so the one time I don't notice any spelling calamities, I
manage to have a huge brain gaffe...

Oh well...

My main point was that the EDP shines in loop creation, manipulation, etc,
and that the volatility of it's loops may not be as important as you'd
initially think.
