       Prof. Hart, no it was not to dilute your pioneering work.
       Yours is as far as I know is the first on Mac. My intention
       was to point out the need to record the developments without
       sleighting any worthwhile contributions. Such 'historical'
       accounts are unfortunately not common in tamil. Especially
       with supporting documents.

       Most of the new developments occur or inventions 
       done in a context of need and often it is a few or
       few groups that lead. As you graciously state many contribute
       a few pioneering groups that advance the ideas due to the
       opportunities..to new developments. 
       or a few pioneering groups that advance the ideas
       Hope I'm not misunderstood.
