Since I plan to turn this into a paper and since copyright
covers the expression of an idea (not the idea itself), and
since I actually rewrote most of the people's comments before
including them in the document, I think I should probably put
a copyright notice on it. So please leave the credits for the
other contributors and add the following to the top:

All you other contributors, please contact me directly if you
think I stole your contributions verbatim and *do not* wish to
give me permission to include your [credited] contributions,
please tell me so we can fix the document. Thanks.
