Beverages close to vertical TX antennas

I have some concern on the closeness of my propossed Beverages and my full
size vertical.
The verical has 4 elevated radials, but will soon be ground mounted.  One of
the Beverages will run within 65' of a 170' tower, and about 70' away from
the vertical. 

Reading ON4UN's book, it says "Large vertical antennas re-radiate strong
signals and will upset the directivity pattern of Beverage antenna  if the
antennas are seperated by less than 1/4 wavelength."

I'm looking for your "real world experience" of how much this will really
effect performance.  After the contest last weekend, I'm really looking at
the posibilities of running a few 800-1000' Beverages in the next few
months.  Any insight you can give would be greatly appreciated.
