    Correction - there are bugs in a couple SOFA library functions, as I
    noted in my message that Andres quoted. The bugs were in the Fortran
    code at the SOFA site, so I inherited them. These affect star catalog
    coordinate transformations between the Hipparcos and FK5 systems. If you
    don't call these functions directly, the bugs have no effect.
    The SOFA people have corrected the source code, but I haven't recompiled
    SofaJpl for Win32. Not worth the bother since I no longer use that DLL.
    The .NET Framework version of SofaJpl is up to date and there are no
    known bugs.
    I filter out messages with attachments or HTML.
