I do wonder how many users of Yorick there are.  I am sure I'm the
only one in the Berkeley astronomy department, for example.

I will take a look at the Gist source, and see if I can understand it
well enough to support it.  I haven't used Gist all that much, but I
finally found a problem that I couldn't solve with the other graphics
packages I know, so I've started using it again.

I found LLNLDistribution11 on the ftp-icf site, so I'm set for now.  I
could look into sourceforge as a distribution site.

Then again, I'd like to graduate by December, so I'm likely to be busy
on my own projects, stamping down gamma-rays and unruly pair plasmas,
without much time for purely programming work.  ;-)
