That will work, and Bill's comments will make it improved.  (I have  
not received his mail, still in Carnivore I assume, but I have seen

The most time consuming part is the square root.  So, if you only  
need to _compare_ distances (as in this point A is closer to point B  
than point C is), then compare without the square root.
