It's a shame these, and other elderly scholarly works, can't just be
released for the greater good, without all this red tape tying them
down. I wonder how much better the world would advance if we could all
go back to the days when we shared knowledge and skills freely between
engineers before all the lawyers became involved. Does anyone else
remember the hay days I wonder...
