I figured this would catch some attention.  I do apologize for the huge
change dump, but idlwave receives much more active development in an
external community than is possible within Emacs.  I do track your
changes regularly, and aside from the RCS, had included everything.  In
particular, RMS recently contacted me about incorrect usage of
interactive-p, which is included in this version.  I would be eager ot
hear of any other changes I inadvertently lost; it was not my intention.
