&*#$*@%&*#&*$ indeed!

Rather than trying to get people to remember to send mail (which they
should do, TOO), let's try doing this for all future changes:

Add a comment line or two near the top of the method, thus:

	"5/6/90 mjm	added return of foo because bar
			needs it"

Then whomever is doing the merge can see what was changed, why, and
by whom, so he can contact the changer if there's any remaining question
about the change.
