At the present, I think this is the most workable process.  Perhaps
Klaus should go next, though, before Rob, since he already has his
mods available for downloading.  Someone with the hardware and a
little knowhow needs to help Klaus by incorporating his work into
the set (Wayne's), (g)zipping it up and offering it for download.

Klaus has told us it's going to be a bumpy ride, so hang on all!

IMHO, that's confirmed.

Status should be zipped into the distribution.  Plans (not dreams)
might be worth documenting, but they are archived on this list already.

- No solicitors -  I see that sign on a lot of front porches.  When
the next worthwhile function is produced and exists, then let the
yelping on the list decide if it's plus or minus to Lynx.  If it's
plus, give it a try.
