What do SPEs do?

If you want to learn more about the role of SPEs (supervisory patent examiners) at the PTO, read the comment thread here at the recent Patently-O post about "rethinking the role of SPEs". 

It appears that a number of Examiners contributed to the comment thread. Sprinkled among the usual "what's wrong with the PTO" discussion between Examiners and practitioners are some interesting tidbits about the inner workings of the Examiner corps.
