Leaky radiator

My Quantum is making yellow snow...  :)

While checking the reason for the flashing low-coolant light (again), I 
discovered that the seam around the top tank of my radiator is leaking 
considerably.  My question to the net is this:  Can this be repaired?  I used to
work in a radiator shop (college summer job), and I don't recall any reason why 
a radiator with metal tanks and an aluminum core couldn't be repaired at the 
seams.  Is there any reason I should just replace it anyway?


PS:  I apologize if this is a rerun.  I didn't see my first post come back from 
the list, so I assume it didn't make it.
