[Sca-cooks] Seeking Costus...

I'd love to get some of the root variously called Costus and Costum 
in most of the books i've read, and also called putchuk and kusht in 
"Flavours of Byzantium" by Andrew Dalby.

We have an excellent spice shop in town, called "Lhasa Karnak", which 
carries lots of seasoning and medicinal herbs and spices, but they 
don't have it - heck, for reasons i don't know, they don't carry long 
pepper - i have to get it at, of all places, "Whole Foods".

I did a web search, but didn't turn up anyone selling it. Has anyone 
come across it for sale?
