Austin,
 
Distance matching requires all neighborhood points.
 
Your argument is like saying -sum, meanonly- runs faster than -sum, detail-.
 
If this is the biggest fault you can find, then it must be a pretty good 
program.
 
Thanks for double-checking all my work. I can now tell everybody that it 
has been looked over carefully by Austin Nichols.
 
I agree that the help file can be expanded. I can add a few words on what 
it manages to do, although this should be rather obvious to anyone working 
with distances.
 
Roy
