[elephant-devel] WARNING

I'm very sorry for the state of CVS and the delay in getting it put  
back together.  Once I have my local copy functioning again, I'll  
download the latest HEAD and make sure it works, at least, with Mac  
and Allegro.  I promise to send a mail to the list when HEAD is  
(mostly) working again.

As for the aforementioned event: my wife gave birth to twin daughters  
about a week ago and was on bed rest a few weeks before that; my  
hacking time was more severely curtailed than I'd hoped.  Of course  
after the birth we discovered new extremes of sleep deprivation and  
I'm sure no one wants to see the code I would have generated then!

I'll roll your suggestions and bug fixes into my local copy.
