Sweetener Synergy

I have heard a few references to the synergistic effect achieved when different sweeteners are combined. I know it occurs when you combine splenda with acesulfame K but I was wondering which other combinations do this as well.

Splenda with stevia?
Stevia with acesulfame K?
Stevia with polyols?
Splenda with polyols?
Acesulfame K with polyols?

Also, besides knowing whether or not synergism occurs, I'm also interested as to how much additional sweetness is generated.

I often combine Splenda with Maltitol. I find that it is a bit sweeter than Splenda alone, and I prefer to use this combination with chocolate over Splenda on its own. I have also found that the texture with Maltitol is creamier than with Splenda alone. I haven't tried other sweetener combos.

Pianomom, do you find that it takes a lot less Splenda & Stevia then if you use them separately?
