Just a thank-you to everyone who helped me brainstorm on the dance 
notation idea. While all the various pieces of advice seem do-able 
individually, the totality of it all makes me uncomfortable. There is 
hardly anything that wouldn't be a hack -- printing, screen display, 
data entry, all of it. I've had plenty of times where I had to use a 
work-around here and there, and in general those do fine, but when the 
core guts of the software needs to be a kludge I'm not comfortable. 
There's just too much that could go wrong, and it is too susceptible to 
multiple problems. After some consideration, I don't think I'll take the 
job.

Rev is good for just about everything, but this one project seems like a 
rare exception to the rule. If anyone feels differently, I'd be happy to 
pass the project on to you.
