Yeah, I feel bad, as I think I started this, I am a mailing list 
moderator (on a different list), and I know politics in a technology 
list is never going to add value.  I should have probably self censored 
my posts :-)

Suffice it to say that I live in the US, and I am generally proud of my 
country, but the recent political landscape exhibits a distinct election 
process design "corner case" that many would consider an error.  How to 
patch a running system, though, is a tough thing to determine.

Well, I have good news and bad news.  As some have noted here, it 
appears to be a mutation of 5/32", but folks are still trying to 
determine the significance of 5/32".  I mean, 1/8" was in general use as 
a measurement (earphone connector) in this timeframe, so I would expect 
.125" to be more realistic.

But, I continue to ask.
