Dear Keith,
	The journal Scanning Electron Microscopy (now named Scanning, I think)
has used OPR for some years now.  They publish a "discussion with reviewers"
section after each paper, which adds significantly to the information in the
paper.  I think this kind of review system could be used in other journals to
great, positive effect.
