I haven't included that exact text because there was already more 
strongly-worded text to that effect that was carefully crafted in response 
to much earlier comments. Please let me know if that is a problem.

I didn't make the other changes Larry suggested since Maciej disagreed 
with them. Please let me know if there are specific edits that do need to 
be made that I missed.

(I haven't yet looked at the edits Paul requested.)
