Sorry Peter, I have to disagree with you here. In my experience, the
number of people in Edinburgh/Dunedin who want to turn skip-change is
greater than the number who want to turn pdb.

Stanley said something along the lines of "Edinburgh have always done it
skip-change, but a few years ago a teacher started teaching it pdb at one
of the classes, and so now you ought to do it pdb for the exam".

Cheers,

Ian
