      If you take the message on the web site at face value ("we are talking
      to several groups about acquiring stats") that theoretically rules out
      this group, since I haven't had any contact from them. I'm not sure
      how many other sources are out there though. Now that Forman has
      turned his operation into a full-fledged business, I suppose he could
      even be looking into purchasing a database from someone.
