[S] Submissions to statlib

Can anyone tell me what's up with Statlib? In early December I submitted a
shar archive of S and FSF Emacs code that lets you use the Emacs menubar and
popup menus from within inferior-S-mode. It has not yet appeared on the web
page (which hasn't been updated since December 8) and I am unable to find it
on the FTP site either. In response to an email inquiry in December, Mike
Meyer told me that he updates Statlib about once a month, but he has not
responded to a subsequent inquiry.

Please do not misunderstand me! This is NOT an attack on Mike Meyer, who has
done the entire S community an enormous service by creating and maintaining
Statlib for all these years. I'm only trying to give back a little by
submitting something other people may find useful.

I've also sent my package to Anthony Rossini, who is working on including it
in the upcoming ESS-5.0. My code works with FSF Emacs but not with XEmacs,
and Tony wants to create something that will work with both.
