gfp insertion near let-23

Dear worm breeders,
we are interested in doing some quantitative genetics in C. elegans.
The first thing we want to look at is vulva formation, and QTLs that
impact let-23. Does anyone have a GFP insertion near to let-23 that
we can use as a "neutral" dominant marker that won't interfere with
mating (and is likely to work in a wide range of different
wild-isolate backgrounds)?

Paul Sternberg et al are interested in compiling a list of GFP
insertions to be put into WormBase, and I will forward any responses
I get to him.
