We also have an Inherit system and I concurr with Eitan.  We've found
it's
speed and ability to do complex pattern queries to be it's strong
advantage
over other tools.  Lack of help/documentation and inability to utilize
it
from platforms other than a MAC are big disadvantages.  We find it
provides one
of many tools required to analysis our data and providing a way in
which
we can better integrate this into our environment would be a tremendous
step!

   Another voice rings out!
