Right, let's try to fix PCC bugs.  It would be a pity to start with the
UNIX/32V or USG 3.0 PCC (whatever it is that 4.2BSD comes with), since
I have found that later releases of PCC have had major portions
rewritten to fix bugs.  Starting with the latest release would seem to
be the most productive approach.

Speaking of which, can anyone predict whether PCC2 is going to supplant
PCC in the near future?  Last I heard, it was considerably slower than
PCC so maybe PCC will be around for a while.
