Since this topic has already been discussed extensively and in far
greater detail in the list archives, I'm ruling it out of order for SL4
unless someone has something new to say. (Sorry, but experience shows
that basic questions can be refought indefinitely and sterilely unless
this rule is enforced.) Searching for "sysop scenario" in the SL4
archives should direct you at all the discussion you could possible want.
