A bit of background: the sources come from a uuencoded posting on
alt.folklore.computers in May 1994 (almost exactly 25 years ago;
that's interesting in context of 50 years of Unix).  It was titled
"Leo's notes", and I grabbed them before they disappeared.  I didn't
meet Warren in person until some years later.

The source comes from scans that Warren made, and they contain typical
scan errors.  I have a number of patches backed up that I should
apply; I'll send another message when I have.
