It's a trade secret.  You better believe that I signed on the dotted line not 
to reveal such stuff.  It's too bad.  But then again, secret info and patents 
are what enables a high-tech company to stay in business.  I agree with Gayle, 
however.  It's too spendy.  I objected to the pricing when the product was 
introduced, but alas, I was only the "Bleach Queen" (yes, that was my moniker), 
and allowed only to rule over certain realms.

    Sounds like good stuff!
    Are you free to tell us what it really is,
    or is that a trade secret?
