Realized I forgot to respond to the list, so am doing so in case  
anyone else would like to continue the thread:


Is TSP in the class of problems you are interested in?  I played with  
reordering crossover a bit but found that in practice it doesn't  
perform nearly as well as edge recombination. I didn't do any formal  
study of that component of my implementation, but if you're looking  
for anecdotal data there it is.
