New CLIM/CLOS version of Hermes (news reader) almost ready

Folks, i've been slowly converting the Hermes 5.0 newsreader into a
CLOS/CLIM version, which is conceptually cleaner, if less featureful
than the Symbolics DW one.  Naturally, it's subject to the whims of CLIM
1.1 which is all i have to test under.

is anyone interested in beta testing it?  (LISPM users only right now)
also, since i'll be leaving bellcore in a couple of weeks and that my
LISPM access will go, would someone like to take over maintaining it,
and maybe add interfaces to new CLIM 2.0 functionality?

as it's now pretty machine independant, it could be made to run on
other CLIM platforms with the addition of a routine to get an NNTP
connection.  this work could best be done by someone who has CLIM
running on multiple platforms including the LISPM...  any takers?
