        Because it is being incorporated in a larger work: My
 presentation accompanies a HOWTO, and has various scripts and example
 code to elucidate the point. I have been able to incorporate parts
 Colin's  presentation into mine, and accompany that with
 documentations, scripts, examples, and at some point the whole shal
 be packaged; by the seed of it was the presentation, and now
 something has grown up around it.
