Basically, he told me that 41+52 constitute one FT "method", in the same
way that 95+96 constitute another. I read 52, and asked him what
relationship 52 had with 41, since it doesn't mention it. He told me
that the official 52 was left in "shambles", and he intends to resubmit
his earlier version.

Frankly, I haven't been following the threads close enough to understand
all the interdependencies. If nothing requires 41, and 52 is deprecated
by 95/96, then why are we even having this argument? Perhaps we can just
bless 95/96 and be done with it?

If its decided this way, I'd probably be willing to motion the last call
on 95/96 - at least I could understand them on first read ;)

Your work is appreciated, temas. And it is crap that it keeps getting
knocked down - as I've said before, there are too many people out there
who have been given an opinion :/
