no, for all i know not.  dan had to rebuild his PET on friday, so had
to recompile the MRS library in ECL, which worked well.  i have yet to
look at the discreprancies between the MRS system and the MRS code in
the LKB (that ann pointed out), but i assume that there are some extra
files in the LKB now that are not used in the PET integration (in fact,
PET makes use of a small fraction of the MRS code only, i think).

ann, you proposed re-naming `mrs.system', and i would rather not: the
name is baked into several Makefiles and likely referenced in various
pieces of documentation (on installing PET).
