Thanks again, Doug Skrecky <> for taking your 
time to do some Real World Research (TM) and post the results 
on CryoNet.  One item stood out for me:

>   Also note: (to my knowledge)
>   Every major university in North America has a fly lab.
>   None are currently doing fly longevity experiments.

This really surprised me.  I thought surely there would be 
more interest in longevity than that.  Perhaps it's worth a 
few phone calls and/or e-mails to try to track down some grad 
students who are looking for a project to do?  It would be 
a Good Thing to get a second set of eyes on the topic...
