This question is inspired, of course, by this question, and I don't know enough commutative algebra to know whether it's answered by silence dogood's answer to this followup question. If the answer is "no," then the original problem will be solved. If the answer is "yes," then the strategy that several people (including myself) were pursuing can't work.
