DMAK, interestingly enough, I believe that is one of the prime questions repeatedly asked on the set of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo-shoot every year!
Um, if you do not get a serious reply from a SAS-L stat guru, you could search for relevant papers using Lex Jansen's amazing SAS paper search site: http://www.lexjansen.com .
DMAK, best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
