Professor Case,

The code is not final yet, as we have not yet implemented nab as the
nmode solver. However, we've done considerable work on overhauling
the tutorial website to reflect the updated script, and we've written
an in-depth chapter to the AT manual which is simply waiting to have
an introduction copied in.

Would you like me to check in our new AT manual (edited within lyx),
or send it to you first?
