thank you so much for the reply about Brown's code. What you describe is
exactly what I am looking to do. What would it take to have the code
available? If you just removed all the passwords i'd be happy to take it in
a completely unsupported state to save development time. I'll buy beers, a
dinner, or ????

PLEASE???? Think of it as the old BITNET collaboration days when we all
worked to change the world :-)
