Ah, I must have been asleep, as I never knew about 4.70. I've 
downloaded it, and am wondering whether to upgrade. AS I've said in 
the past, I have a certain amount of personalised stuff in ModeFiles 
and so on, so upgrading is always a complicated business. Is it 
possible to upgrade it in a way that keeps all my changed stuff? 
Otherwise, I'm going to be too busy to do it for a week or so.
