Wasn't suggesting it. However, the kind of maintenance it needs is
really organizational more than theoretical. As a side note, at the
Santa Cruz committee meeting Jens and I worked out a new design for
the library based on some feedback he'd gotten from heavy users, which
he was planning to bring forward as a proposal for the TR. I'm
guessing that he's been unable to pursue it, which would be a shame
because I thought it had real potential.
