No worries - thought that might be case - didn't want possibly spurious 
ref cited as a summary in distributed files - URI year made me suspicious 
- those guys have published a fair amount on the same topics over the 
decades - seem like pretty rigorous treatments - Canon/NASA summary 
polynomials appeared less uniform than the authors' current tables.
