      Derek,

      Almost a year ago, you posted a comment:

      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Pali/message/5639

      Which I had only just accidently noticed. You had asked:

      Absolutely. Consider any scripts mentioned by me,
      on this list, for which I can claim responsibility,
      to be in the public domain.
