I'm one of the silent 5 or 6.  My reasons fall under "None of the
above."   They are three in number:
    1. No time (the perennial excuse; next 2 weeks are quite hectic)
    2. I tried to use ndiff to compare old and new ceval.c, but 
       ran into some problems with that tool.  (Tim, it looks 
       like the line endings are identical -- all '\012'.)
    3. Wasn't sure what to look at first

My only suggestion would be to have an executive summary.  If there
was a short README file -- no more than 150 lines -- that described
the essentials of the approach and told me what to look at first, I
would be able to comment more quickly.
