Unfortunately, doing that "version" would force Ed into becoming another 
Adobe-type corporation, with employees, payrolls, IP issues, lawyers, and so 
forth ad nauseum. This is what some of us have been trying to say since we 
met Vuescan and Ed--"Keep it simple. Please."

Ed may eventually get tired of our carping and sell out to AOL or somebody 
for big bucks, to go enjoy the Good Life. Before he does, I hope he'll 
notify his faithful old customers, so we can get one last full copy of the 
"Unmitigated Vuescan." :-)

Best regards--LRA
