One P.S.
We could move all or most of lit to Kevins machine and get access account
to it.  That way his server would be a central site, but everyone (who had
aranged to) could get in to maintain parts.  (I beleave this isn't
posssible at SunSite.  We could leave it there, or use it as a mirror and
upload stable versions to SunSite.
