        I might be a little bit concerned about team dynamics if charts
        automatically generated by the team were considered less believable than
        charts manually generated by the team.

        On the other hand, I was looking for reasons (other than pure
        efficiency, which I thought to be rather weak) for preferring hand-built
        BVCs over automatically-generated ones, and now I've heard several. Now
        I know more than I did a few days ago. Which, as Ron's automatic .sig
        generator is so fond of noting, is a good thing.

        Ron, might I suggest you include some of these reasons in your BVC page?
