The .ps file is from the 1.* release.  The current flowchart gif is
unreadable, while this one is quite nice.  At one point, I saw a
untility that would pull diagrams out of a postscript file and into
xfig, but I lost name of it somehow.

I just left it there so we would have a readable copy we could use
someday.  It would be nice if we could get this loaded into xfig, or
click-able html.  I have thought about it, and findoidjions does most of
the work.  I have toyed with some html, and it looked OK, but I was not
100% satisfied.  I was looking for some multi-level display, that could
show tables, and you could click into them.
