If anyone else wants, I can assemble the last month's collection from
undeleted capture files.  Otherwise, if you have reasonable readers,
look at bionet.cellbiol AND bionet.molbiol.ageing.  Both are getting
sporadic attention on apoptosis.  When one gets to be more active
I will try to warn the other
