	1/ Is there a place on the Internet where i coould
	read up on this ? I was aware of the notion but never
	saw it demonstrated as in "Sequence A" VS "Sequence B"
	(strobe, no strobe).

	2/ Don's post describes an EXCELLENT reason why
	the new LEICA M6 / TTL is going to be "hot news"
	in photo shops. It opens up a lot of possibilities.
	Even the reluctant conservative "classics lovers"
	will find themselves carried over when they
	see how simple much more sophisticated lighting
	schemes can be implemented with a TTL flash

	 Then: MULTI flash TTL : Ho!  Ho!  Ho!
