Indeed, that's what Andreu Ve? did at his get-together [I forget what it 
was called.]  Virtually ALL of the folks who worked on ARPAnet and many 
who worked on CSNET were there and we were all hashing things out -- for 
many, they were working on different parts of the same thing and this 
get-together was actually the first time they got to "compare notes" and 
see how the pieces fit together.  I know many of you were there...  has 
anyone heard if Andreu has made any progress transcribing the discussions 
[or if they're available so someone else could]??
