hi eric,

no and yes, i would say.  and so was i, though in the reverse sense.  i
think francis is as always right and i will include ELI files in future
LOGON builds.  still, we are not quite at the point where end-to-end MT
and all the scripts work with a binary-only system.  but pretty close,
and after christmas we have completed the final LOGON integration, and
i will be paid to work on packaging and documentation :-)
