Yes, and I believe that the survey you propose, when it's delivered, 
will be superior to this one.  The fact that we're going to do a better 
survey 1 or 2 months from now is no reason not to do an OK survey now.

It's not like we're limited to doing 1 survey per year for some reason.

During the next 2 weeks, will have more traffic than it 
will for the rest of the year.  This gives us an opportunity to hear 
from *more* users than we will a month from now.

However, to allieviate some of your concerns, JD has duplicated the 
survey on so that we can have the survey on a site we control.
