Thanks Miles.  I've looked at it closer, and as expected everything was
up to date in idlwave.el with the changes made since my last submission
of 2002-09-12 (except the arch-tag and superfluous CVS tags, of
course).  I suppose there is no arch-friendly $Date$ equivalent?

I had missed some very recent changes (last week or so) to idlw-shell.el
-- just simple re-organization and a few minor doc fixes.  I've
incorporated those and am about to check in.  One change which I haven't
included yet is replacing `assoc-ignore-case' with `assoc-string'.  This
must be a new function, and as such I won't be able to make it available
to my users for a while (or ever, if XEmacs never picks it up).  I can
update it in Savannah only, if that's your preference, but this will
requiring keeping our two versions (minorly) forked.  Just a small
change, so not really a problem, your preference.

The file idlw-rinfo.el is automatically generated and should not be
manually edited.  A few years back, RMS found some spelling mistakes
which traced back to errors made in the original IDL documentation: this
really amused and embarrassed their doc group.  Any spelling mistakes
are "correct" in the sense that they correspond to the manual from which
they were scanned.
