I would like to add to these excellent comments that the Royal
Horticultural Society book on propagation include squishing the soaking /
fermenting mess which speeds the process and helps remove the pulp from the
seeds. They also talk about swishing the bowl around and pouring off the
pulpy mess, kind of like panning for gold. I would be cautious with small
seeds though - don't want to lose the baby with the bath water.

I like the hydrochloric acid suggestion, especially for seeds that need
scarification (scratching) as it does two jobs in one.

Great success to all!
