Subject: Immoderate notes: brief pause in texhax; issue 17 sliced up

%%% Issue 17 was sliced in half by some unkind IBM systems using SMTP. Glenn
%%% Vanderburg informs me that the reason was a line that was longer than
%%% 80 columns got wrapped, which resulted in the next line beginning with
%%% a period. SMTP though that this meant it was about to get a command. So
%%% it went through the remainder of the digest, looking for a command, which
%%% of course it didn't find -- only more TeXhax.
