Well, they did agree to move me down to the bottom, so that will help (my old 
space was at the top!).  And I did bitch and complain about the 2-post... 
apparently there's new direction in their group and there are plans to 
replace the 2-posters with 4-posters.  I complained I was worried about 
safety yadda yadda...

So, I guess getting "rails" is useless without four posts.  Do I just get a 
cantilevered shelf and be done, or is there some other way I can try to 
anchor this thing beyond gravity?
