;;->              "c:civ m:mil p:population f:food ?"
;;->              "You have discovered the GEET redistribution commands
;;->   From here, you can use the following options:
;;->c   Redistribute civs from overfull sectors into connected underfull ones
;;->      The functions typically named by empire-ideal-civ-fcn control
;;->          based in part on empire-sector-civ-threshold  
;;->m   Redistribute military using levels given by empire-ideal-mil-fcn
;;->p   Redistribute excess population to highways for max pop growth
;;->      Excess is any sector so full babies will not be born.
;;->f   Even out food on highways to highway min and leave levels
;;->      This is good to pump max food to all warehouses/dist pts
;;->Use \\[help-for-empire-redistribute-map] for help on redistribution.
;;->Use \\[help-for-empire-extract-map] for help on data extraction.
;;->Please use \\[describe-key] to find out more about any of the other keys."
