Everything you say below is true, so I guess I'm forced to put my fantasy of
being related to "Eric the Red" out to pasture. Since my brother and I are
both redheads, it seemed a logical connection.

Anyway, which are the fast mutators I should eliminate from the search
engine? There must be some of them in the 24-location test, too, since I'm only
pulling one exact match there.
