I dunno exactly Shaun, but it looks interesting.  You might want to include
a thermostable ligase.  A similar protocol, involving Taq ligase, was
presented by S.F. Michael (Biotechniques 1994 16:410-412), which you might
want to check out.  Anyone who gets results with this, we'd be interested to
hear a summary to this group.
