Thanks for the input. us_tiger is already gone. BTW. the geodata list is 
such low volume atm that I forgot I was already sub'd to it. I think we 
will try using the geodata list and if we really need a new list in the 
future, so be it.

I will start up some discussion there later today. Please join it as I 
would value your input and idea in this discussion.
