If RR must conclude that they cannot support iPhone, I am positive they 
will be responsible about your purchase and offer alternatives. That 
isn't something I'd worry about.

Last night I was looking through my ancient AOL archives because I 
really did hope I'd saved a copy of some of those kiddie stacks. No 
luck, except for the original "Barney Dies!!!" (can't recall offhand if 
there were three or four exclamation points) which was misfiled and 
therefore inadvertently backed up. I'm sorry now we didn't download the 
kiddie library when we were doing the final backups before the forum was 
killed off. I'm consiering turning it into a revlet for old times sake. 
What's spooky is that the author is probably in his thirties by now with 
a nine year old of his own.
