Re: Capacitor outside foil orientation test results.
This is a great idea, Andy, especially when the cap is connected at both ends to a relatively high-impedance portion of the circuit, where it won't benefit from the outside foil connection.  
Not only that, but the copper foil will cover up the cap values in a much more elegant manner than "gooping" the circuit. I can just picture the inside of the amp with bright copper tape wrapped around all the caps. :)
