Say, if TUNES is going to be a global distributed system, as I assume it 
will, are we going to provide access to it for those of us with only 
dial-in unix accounts for internet access?  It'd be a shame to have the 
"bestest" distributed document manager on Earth and have some of us not 
be able to use it.

Okay, I'll go back to work now.  =)


PS Anyone know the location of some good docs on the athena widgets for 
Xt?  I REALLY need to start playing with some ideas, but the only GUI I'm 
currently knowledgable in is Mac.  Athena seems like it'd have some good 
documentation, seeing how many folks use it.  Could it be free?  =)
