Jamie -

IIRC you said you might rewrite the backtest engines. What about adding a feature whereby the user could select slots x through n in his backtest instead of slots 1 through n (the top "n" stocks)? IOW instead of testing stocks 1 through 3 the user could specify stocks 2 through 4?

Never mind how much further down the data mine shaft this takes us :-)
