+1 - although we use a locally-developed bit of software, it basically 
does the same thing. IMHO, waiting on some future notional re-working of 
privacy addresses is not useful - they're here, and need to be dealt with.

(That said, it would be good if someone could hit Apple with a 
clue-stick regarding their crappy hyper-fast PA rollover...)
