thanks for this upload also.  i've installed the new version (queen or
no queen) and updated the catalogue entry (without any mention of good
ol' brenda).

and of course, the change in the catalogue overnight, for this one, will
amount to no more than a slight twitch in the royal net curtains.

(who happens to know that queen brenda is in charge of more than just
the uk [including the isle of man, the channel islands and various other
odd bits and pieces] but nowhere near as much as her father was emperor
of -- we used to have an embarrassingly large empire which has mostly
been dismantled, starting with the independence of india in the year of
my birth.)
