We are grateful to Hideyuki Umeda, Ken’ichi Nomoto, and Nozomu Tominaga for sending us their explosion models for metal-poor and metalrich progenitors and several programs for our model computations. We also thank Keiichi Maeda for providing us with his aspherical explosion models, and for helpful discussions. We are grateful to Tom Marsh for the use of the MOLLY analysis package, to Jorge Casares for his helpful comments on different aspects of this work, and to Ryan J. Foley for assistance with the observations. We also thank the referee for helpful comments. The W. M. Keck Observatory is operated as a scientific partnership among the California Institute of Technology, the University of California, and  NASA; it was made possible by the financial support of the W. M. Keck Foundation. This work has made use of the VALD database and IRAF facilities. It was funded in part by Spanish Ministry project AYA2005-05149 and by US National Science Foundation grant AST-0307894. We dedicate this paper to the memory of our dear friend and collaborator E. T. Harlaftis, whose life was tragically cut short by a snow avalanche on 13 February 2005.
