I'll second that.  I have copies of both patents.  I've read them but
Paul seems to have a much better handle on what thier claims are.  If
you are still interested contact me and I'll try to eek out some time
to re-read and list the specific claims.  

I haven't compared the differences between the first patent and the
second one (which is a re-issue of the first one) but it seems to
just add some more generic claims.
