Hi, Helder-

Thanks for your comments.  Supplying a CVS patch is clever, but that's 
not really how we've traditionally take comments... I'll leave it up to 
the editor, but I would personally much rather see a simple corrected 
document that could be easily reviewed and copy/pasted if necessary.

It is good to get such comments early, so it makes critical review at LC 
much less painful.

Regards-
