That's great, Neil; accepted with thanks. Even with Jason's kind offer,
it would still be very nice to have more than one person available to do
Side note: anyone who contributes to the proofing process - technical,
HTML vetting, whatever - please add your name to that issue's STATUS
file as described there. We do not yet have a mechanism for using this,
but at some point in the near future, I'm hoping to have a bit of
processing added that will display those names on the index page of each
issue. Either via my ham-handed efforts, or someone else's Python skills
(which would be greatly preferred; when I take an axe to Python, it
ain't pretty), but it *will* happen.
