Not I.  Is there a trial version  I could grab for my
Mac to test?

There IS a trial version. You can use it for 30 days, I believe. Just a  note 
of caution. AdmitMac Version 3 has a bug in it that primarily affects its  
operation in Tiger (10.4.2). The original release (build 867) would give you  
mysterious "File I/O errors" on large and fast file transfers. The current  
release that you can download (build 868) seems to rigidly clamp down transfer  
rates to about 9.5 MB/sec -- even over Gigabit Ethernet. 
By contrast, the original release (build 867) gave you around 55 MB/sec  
transfer speed over Gigabit. BUT, with the occasional "File I/O error" that  could 
cause your application to freeze.
