I would like to suggest that a more effective strategy than turning
away Steve's (student's) work is to find a way to use it.  Perhaps Eli
can spare a moment to figure out whether the student's bundle is in
any way superior to his?  Maybe the student knows a way out of this
RPM mess.  Or might at least learn something about RPM from Eli. (-:
