Thanks, 10 Wheels. Good link.
I don't know if it's a useful observation, but I had a big problem getting a good reach on the brake levers, except when using the drops. Finally, we went to a moustache bar and the horizontal arrangement of the levers totally solved the problem. Suddenly, my hands were big enough. This was on the touring bike. Someone else might not care for it on a straight up road bike. Anyway, it was definately cheaper than changing brifters.
Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.
