        This I could live with, but there has to be some indication
 this is temporary, and indeed, there should be a time table for the
 /usr/doc move (partial, and tentative it may be, but a timetable

        The only difference between this and the previous propsal is
 the removal of 2B, correct? I like this less than 2 above.

        I strongly object to this one.

        I have just put forth an amendment to Ians proposal 4 to make

 Dale> Do we need to discuss the relative merits of any of these?

        If we all voiced our opinions and rationale for each of the
 proposals (a one liner would do), I would feel better. No discussion
 beyond the first mail from all of us need occur.

 If atheism is to be used to express the state of mind in which God is
 identified with the unknowable, and theology is pronounced to be a
 collection of meaningless words about unintelligible chimeras, then I
 have no doubt, and I think few people doubt, that atheists are as
 plentiful as blackberries... Leslie Stephen (1832-1904), literary
