Arturo and other R afficianados: We have surveyed the membership about many
issues(e.g.,black vs. chrome vs. Ti M6). It would be interesting to know
what is the frequency distribution of mode selection  among LUG users of R4,
R5, R7 and R8.Let me start to show what I have in mind.

manual:               20%
aperture priority: 80%
shutter priority:    0
program:              0
