BTW I agree strongly -- the MEPs I've contacted do know that the current
proposal is bad, but there does not seem to be an alternative set of
amendments that we can point to and say "but these are good".   Without
that I'd be concerned that there'd be a lot of confusion, with possibly
bad results.

Have the Greens/EFA produced any guidelines, anyone know?  They seemed
to be most on top of it of any of the large groups.
