Thanks to all for their prompt efforts in producing this transcript.  I've
passed on the URL to ENTEMP.  

In passing, I spoke to Brian Greene (Baldoyle/Sutton local election
candidate (Socialist Party)) who works as a *nix programmer.  He was pretty unaware of swpats
issues but was sympathetic when I detailed them.  When asked about Joe
Higgins (Euro candidate (Socialist)), I was told he's not familiar with the
issue either.  However, if elected (which they think unlikely), he would be
a good prospect for support.
