	I find LacZ easier to assay, but the more significant reason is to
keep the same reporter gene in all my assays (I'm using the protein fusions
to compare with transcriptional lacZ fusions already developed in my lab.)
Lastly, I didn't know cat _was_ a protein fusion...I learn something new
each day.
