Send me a copy.  I'll put it on the ESS WWW site with your permission,
and subject to a general agreement to sign paperwork if/when we submit
ESS to the FSF (under the GPL), could work on integration.

Note that I don't know of anyone using GenStat, or have access, so
would need the cooperation of some people who do.
