You are of course right, but this is not a comforting choice to be offered.
I *like* to be able to link the "participants" in a multi-individual census
household. The ability to do so comes from one of TMG's best features, a
feature that is part of what differentiates TMG from the rest of the crowd.
On the other hand, I *need* to be able to get my TMG data into other tools
that are important to me. If others weren't in the same boat with me, this
whole issue would have died days ago.
