The hard part is finding a way to compare apple wine and cloved oranges,
if I may slaughter an not old enough saying.  I would not want to choose
between Playchoya's beautifully crafted arrow (sorry for the assumption
that you do that if you don't) and Gunnora's superb clay beads.  This is,
of course, assuming all the documenting part is equal and the displayed
skill is equal.  Please forgive if the examples are bad, but I do hope
they got the point across.

Ideas?  Me?  not right now, no.  I just know my handwork couldn't compete
with the fabled strawberry mead (I *really* want to sample that! :) ).
