Good wording and suggestions, Ed.

I have the versions that run on Mac OS X (which are slight mods of
the version from other platforms), except for the BRP (which Karl
Auerbach got working on his PC). I'm not sure how those corresponds
to the version at sourceforge. We should probably do some sync
soon. I've not looked at the Strong Box Linux version.

Best regards,
Arthur
