Right on Geoff,
As well I forgot all about the new genetic Monsantomonsters that are being
created too.  Haven't seen the Taxacom thread tackle that
nomenclatorial-clad-classif. horror yet! Fortunately there were just a few
major transgenic events in the past.  Now we will get a new one every week
with the Biosafety Protocol ruling saying that nothing in the protocol will
interfere with WTO rules!
