I think it ended when I offered to help, and Bill provided a set of
"requirements" (damifino where he got them) to go into the code. I figured
I wait until he'd finished all the changes we was going to put into the
release before I started mucking with it. Unfortunately, the release has
been pushed back (and i've been busy anyhow). I got the impression that if
I couldn't produce exactly to Bill's requirements he wouldn't put the code in.
