I've always resisted this, thinking that if the color differences indicated=

nothing significant (date, for example, since all colors were used all the =

instead of, say, red bands to 1932 then green bands to 1935 etc) then posti=

all colors for the sake of posting was redundant and unnecessary work. =20

But since the collector -- who has contributed a LOT of work on recent ML=

projects -- asked for it, I thought I'd get people's opinions. If the weigh=
t of=20
arguments clearly demands it, I'll do it.

Please post your thoughts on this issue.
