Thank you, Gerard, I'm honored.  I Hope I can help with the project.

I'm just getting ready to leave here, don't think I can get anything
out this morning.  To make matters worse, I'm going to be having
network problems in the city, since I thought I wouldn't be returning
and have no apartment there anymore.  I'll be able to check my mail
and cvs once or twice a day at most.  I've got a good latex install
and the book sources on my laptop, though, so I'll check back this
evening.  ctan.org has all the world and then some for TeX/LaTeX, if
we need anything beyond what is in the teTeX distribution tapes.
