We had a brief go-round on this back in November, and I unearthed a Word 4.0 version of the first paper, which I sent around to those who requested it. If more people would like it I can send it to them as well (please send me a private request) -- it would come as an 80K attachment being a stuffit archive of the Word document.
If someone would like to put this up on a web site that would be also great (I would offer to edit the few changes between this draft and the paper that appeared at OOPSLA). We just need to get permission from ACM (Dwight Hughes knows all about this).
