No, I'm not going to add yet another a "me-too" ... instead, I'm going
to suggest that you post your question to soc.culture.french, or any
other language you may have interest in.  After all, this net is world-
wide, and if anybody has such a thing, the nation of origin ought to be
a good place to start looking.

In fact, I'll do it for you.  I'm cross-posting this article to
soc.culture.french, soc.culture.german, and soc.culture.misc, with
follow-ups directed to comp.misc, so you can read the responses here.

Those of you in France, Germany, or wherever, who are reading this,
forgive me if I can't communicate in your native tongue.  Americans tend
to be very bad at other peoples' languages.  If you have the solution to
this problem, please post your response in English if possible, or at
least provide a translation.

Thanks in advance!
