   You know, this sort of thing would be ideal for the fabled ftp
   software server that was discussed at the BOF at AAAI... (hint, hint).

I would sure like to see this happen.  Franz people said that they had
previously done a lot of work in deciding how to setup an anonymous ftp
server for the distribution of hacks, patches, etc., and they agreed that it
was still a good idea.  If other Allegro-CL users would like to see such a
facility, please consider making your opinion known on this list.  The
number of replies (or lack thereof) will help Franz determine their
priority in establishing such a server.
