Is this available in Electronic form, if so I wouldn't mind looking
at a copy....

I just looked at it, and saw another 6-8 weeks of development added
to a project that is already 6 months behind it's (unofficial)
scheduled release, with another 2 months to go. If it was something

just write it the way I was going to write it, and deal with it in a
future version.
