Yes, Googling for "tries" is a pain, isn't it?

I thought you might know the trie-gen people, as the ChangeLog is
sprinkled with @cygnus addresses.

Unfortunately, as I said in my earlier message about pdksh and splint, I'm
in a pretty uncertain job situation at the moment, and there's no
guarantee my next job will even allow me to continue my previous
maintainership commitments, let alone new ones.  I'll know better about
two weeks from now, at which point I'll consider maintaining some of the
other packages (including cocom) if I can.
