As I posted on TI-L, I only saw your plea on TI-L.  You must have forgotten to
cc the other lists.  I hope that by reposting your plea, you will get a better
response.  Remember that fable about the difference between people in hell and
people in heaven?  They all had long spoons that prevented them from feeding
themselves.  The people in hell starved to death trying to feed themselves
with long spoons.  The people in heaven fed each other with the long spoons.
Normally, one should be wary of being "taken."  However, you are a long time
member of this list, and we should know you and trust you by now.
