Gentlemen, please...can we talk about me for a minute?
Though entertaining, this byplay eats into my allotted fifteen minutes of fame. ;-)

Besides, you really want something like:

	echo "knowledge of $(unset last; for ACRONYM in ${LinkedIn[*]};
		do echo -n ${last:+,}$arg; last=$arg; done)."

But I wasn't recruited to be a ebuild dev (Calchan would add, "yet") so I won't
point that out.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome!  I promise to do my best to moderate the
forums in the capricious, arbitrary and inscrutable--err, I mean, fair and
balanced--manner to which we're all accustomed.
