[AV Media Matters] Film Rewashing / Vinegar Snydrome

I have been thinking a bit recently about the Vinegar syndrome, and was
wondering if anyone has done any research on the effectiveness or
rewashing film in reducing acetate levels.  I have never heard it
mentioned much, but it would seem to me that washing - perhaps in a
solution of photoflow that is perhaps a bit alkaline might do a nice job
of slowing down the process a bit.  It seems so obvious that I assumed
that others had tried it - but I have spoken to several people about it
now and I have only gotten a "that's interesting"...

I was planning to do a bit of experimentation on it over here, but I
thought I might ask if anyone has tried it and what the experience was?
