I think I can integrate the splash screen in a straightforward manner.
Corey, your housemade did a great job. If there's any way to put that
graphic in the brochure, I'm all for it.

Quang, all the help is in the help.tcl; when I redid the tabs, I did
not change the name of the frames. That means some of the stuff stayed
the same. Much was reorganized, so there's a lot that has to be hunted

Deleting the construction lines is the work of minutes. We can do that
tomorrow. I'll try to get there right at 4. If I'm not there, then
just download the source for skypoint, download your new help.tcl from
wherever you have it, and change mac.tcl to really call define_help.
Alternatively, you can test it by starting wish and sourcing mac.tcl
and then calling define_help in the console session.

I didn't get to work much on actually running the hypermail command,
but that was backend stuff anyway.

I didn't solve the problem of the illegal pathname causing a freaked out
dialog box, but that can be prevented in our demo.

Has anybody worked on our demo script?

That's all for now. I'm going to integrate the splash screen, upload
EVERYTHING, and then call it a night.
