We probably should have done that for THI, too.  Matt, if you've got the
value that Ceres/Ameritrade credited us for the leftover half-share, I'll
subtract that amount from THI's cost basis on the dynamic valuation page.
(Whew, that's a mouthful.)  Actually, is there more to it than that?  Do we
have to account for capital gains (or losses) on the half-share that we're
"cashing out"?

I've got a few thoughts on Oracle, but I haven't had time to put them into a
coherent message to send out.  I hope to soon.
