I disagree Frank. Stephens mind is unchangeable. In what, 15 years 
starting with the Princeton list, he has yet to answer any question put 
to him with anything but a change of subject to something entirely 
un-related. So if SHF is in charge, he likely will get no help.

I got tired of trying to get a simple yes or no out of him about a year 
ago, so his posts have now been deleted from my isp's mail servers 
before fetchmail can pull them ever since.

This list has dissolved into long strings of reply's to SHF's posts that 
I don't see and my ulcers are happy when those threads die. Nothing is 
ever actually resolved because any question put to SHF is never 
answered, the thread thankfully running down eventually when folks tire 
of it. 

There are other, younger & far more qualified people on this list who 
have intimated they might do it given time and access, and who would 
have little problem gathering some helpers.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
