Yes, I'm sorry that I didn't see that Way Back When.  Perhaps I have
become a bit over-dependent on the "locate" command... when
	locate xeplain.tex
returned nothing, I didn't spend the requisite time searching around
in the eplain tree.  (Admittedly, I might have noticed a tar file, but
the zip file didn't register on my radar.  My bad.)
