You seem to have in mind the Jesus seminar ... for what it's worth, I don't
know that the cases are particularly parallel: the biggest problem with the
Jesus Seminar is their preconceptions.  The fact that they use colored beads
to implement those methods seems irrelevant.

So far as I know, there is no translation with a red letter edition
available which does not also offer a black-letter edition.  What's the
issue here?
