Hi Helen
	I am sort of torn by this myself. I know many people on these robins
work years to get a hosta or two that they consider good enough to
introduce and/or grow long enough to see the final quality of the plant.
I don't understand how one person can have somewhere in the range of 125
in a few years, most it seems in the last year or so. There are maybe
10% that are mutual intros. 
	I am trying to look at it like there is no limit or standards that
anybody follows so each person sets their own.
