	The correct place to reveal that location is the pretest
 mailing list.

	I am not sure of the provenance of the mule mailing list, but
 was the leak sanctioned by the people in charge of the pre-test? If
 not, one leak does not sanction others.

 "Writing programs needs genius to save the last order or the last
 millisecond. It is great fun, but it is a young man's game.  You
 start it with great enthusiasm when you first start programming, but
 after ten years you get a bit bored with it, and then you turn to
 automatic-programming languages and use them because they enable you
 to get to the heart of the problem that you want to do, instead of
 having to concentrate on the mechanics of getting the program going
 as fast as you possibly can, which is really nothing more than doing
 a sort of crossword puzzle." Christopher Strachey, 1962
