Then why does my new APDA catalog, which came about two days ago, list
'Macintosh Common Lisp v.2.0.1 Update (B0753LL/B, $200) with a note

I would assume that this means he can upgrade for $200, and get
everything but CLtL (since the regular MCL 2.0.1 product has 3
floppies, 1 CD, and two manuals listed as its contents).
