What is happening

18 Oct 2007 -- Time flies! Simplified CL-Variates so that it no longer requires CL-MathStats, Metatilities or any other system (yippee for simplification!). Improved internal organization some; brought test suite back to life.

14 Nov 2005 Corrected links; added tarball, etc.

9 Nov 2005 Just getting things set up here.
