for the original released files. The new CM class is very simple and  
it is the cloner changes that were the really tricky part - the  
earlier cloner was very limited and need quite a bit of sneaky work  
to make it possible to do the needed transmutations.

Note that this bunch of files don't have anything much by way of  
clever tricks for handling source; I can't find anything on my system  
from the experiements I did at Interval.
Also note that the chances of being able to filein this code to any  
recent image is essentially zero. Don't waste your time!
