Speaking of assigning some file ownerships to people who were
historcially involved in created Unix back at that point in time, have

get ken or dmr to write a "preface" to the readme file that will
inevitably come into existance once we make together a "turnkey"
distro of this for folks to play with in SIMH or something?
