Wow.  All right, then -- I'll have to put together a scenario to give
a try.	It'll need to be installed on a big ship to have any chance of
getting close enough to use it, but that's part of the fun.  I already
an idea for the symbol: An equilateral triangle with a dot in the center

Ask on this list, and ye shall recieve.  Although I'm rather suprised
