No chance of having the build script for bento place a completed INDEX
someplace that can be trusted in the event that an INDEX build is
partially complete?  With the frequency of INDEX builds on bento or
rtp, this seems like a distinct possibility.  Also, would you object
if I scp'ed a INDEX onto freefall for hosting there?  -sc
