  Hi Stephen,

  We went through this in some private mail just before the mailing list
was setup (and Andy said more or less the same thing as you wrote below). 
ROOT still has some legacy people using Solaris 7, so still needs to support
Sol7. Hopefully whoever it is can be convinced that the world has moved on...

  [Not sure who you CC-d: note that I've CC-d this to the mailing list and
not the HN. That combination isn't doing exactly what I thought it was doing.]
