UPDATE:

I installed my new '44-32-22' crank-set last night, and took it out on my longest and most demanding ride yet. It worked out absolutely perfectly. It seemed like it may have been a bit of a gamble, but it sure did pay off big time. I would not want this bike geared one bit higher than this. At least not if and until I end up with Hercules legs or something. I was able to complete by far my longest and most demanding ride yet today, and I really don't think I could have done it with the original gearing. For anyone considering this change, I highly recommend it!

Now I just need to get my new bars installed and raised and then I should be good to go even further!
