I'm very interested in comments, additions and updates to this document. It
was originally written in 1992-93 by myself and Mark Nelson (Mark doing most of
the writing, and me doing most of the editing). It has since been dormant, with
the exception of a few updates here and there. Please
mail me (Harold Reynolds) with anything you
wish to contribute!
