I'm sorry, but I think this is a completely pointless exercise. Once again,
I'll strongly advise that you don't create a shared key - even for a 'test'
run. Once you create it, we're going to be bound to use it forever - whether
you think we should or not - it's there and its absence will cause worry among
people who have seen it before.

I think you're also ignoring the fact that most of the other developers have
stated that they are against having a shared key. -- justin
