"Amazing!" said Ahern (A THINK Pascal thrasher, and my doctoral advisor...).
"You got the patch ALREADY?!" said Means (a Borland C++ junkie...).

These comments express the shock of others, who predicted I was hung forever
from using MCL on my IIsi.

However, from the fast responses of Bill & Reti at 
"info-mcl@cambridge.apple.com" to my reports of V-M conflicts, I would have 
been surprised otherwise!

Yes, Reti! the patch works on my IIsi !!!!!

Now running 9MB memory (5MB installed RAM + 4 MB v-m) with your patch

I'll keep the debugger active for awhile and keep you informed of any
