Hi, All:

Very interesting topic.  I chatted with Jonathan about this, but wanted to
share with the group, I bought one of these a few years ago just because I
was so excited that something like it was available for a few dollars at a
non-specialty store:

You enter a combination of motions along the cardinal points to unlock it.
It's indexed so that you can only push along the cardinal directions and
there's a good "click" when you have pushed the stick far enough.  All you
need to feel is which way is up, which is pretty obvious as the metal of
the lock is always "up" and feels different than the body.  I've unlocked
it in the dark and one handed, it's a good design.

Anyway,  sadly the timing never works out for me to attend the design
crits, but I hope to see the slides at least as I am really interested in
the topic.
