I can't find copies of those messages so I will summarize here.  One
of them was unimportant - simply an observation that the mis-typing of
TITLE as TITLe in the documentation for the library function is
intentional.  The second was a query to Fritz with a copy to this list
on whether the data files in the bootstrap library are indeed
accessible with the data function.  It seems not.  If there was a
convention that files ending with .data in a data directory should be
read with read.table I think that would be great.  Actually I think it
would be "insanely great" if they were read with
 read.table(filename, header = TRUE)
