This topic is of interest to me.  Please keep it public.  Another 
question, have any cultivars been identified as having "brittle" graft 
unions?  I would expect that the more vigorous cultivars (i.e., 
Northern Spy, Mutsu) would have more highly stressed unions and might 
therefore appear more brittle.
