    It's still not at [itex]3\sigma[/itex]...

    Nevertheless, it's quite interesting and exciting.

    I've been watching these developments since the earlier Brookhaven announcement. What I've seen so far is that the calculation of this quantity is still in a very unsettled state. Depending on whose doing it, the results can be anywhere from a fraction to several standard deviations off from the experiment. Until the theoreticians can come to some sort of agreement, the jury is still out.
