Note:  I was accidentally using a modified copy of FoodMart for this 
test, which is why the metadata and data don't match the normal 
FoodMart.  You should instead be able to use the Mondrian queries I sent 
out against normal FoodMart in MSAS 2000 to verify the slicer-dependency 
of the named set evaluation (it should match Mondrian native results).
