Great!!!! (btw, ``public domain'' means, at least to some lawyers,
that the authors abandon all and any rights to their work; in that sense,
our code is just ``free software'', subject to the same liberal licensing
that applies to Perl.)

This is optimal for your developer's site, and medium-term, we can
maybe mirror things there. Thanks!
