	You'll have to get the official word from Barry, but I'm sure 
that as soon as there is any work around that has been determined, 
that would be announced in the appropriate places.

	In the meanwhile, this is the first I've heard of this matter, 
and I don't have any more information to make available to you.

	Right now, there is no next step.  The matter needs to be handled 
through the appropriate channels (which are reasonably secure).  Part 
of that standard process would be making sure that a suitable 
announcement is made at the appropriate time.

	I don't think that we can do anything more than this, and I don't 
think it's reasonable to expect anything more than this.
