Indeed, I have been working at a new revision, which is now
half-finished.  Several bugs have been fixed, but I have not done very

However, the translator does appear to work.

  Regrettably, during the last four or five weeks I have been fairly
busy, so my ``development pace'' has slackened somewhat.  Anyway, the
new revision should be ready in a month or so.
