    While it is true that some people might copy the CD of back issues,
it is not like this will be a 'hot item' in the world.  Not only that,
people who would want it might not be in the same location.  And, not
everyone who belongs to IGS is even on the computer let alone interested
in researching the back issues.
    I would suggest that it be on separate CD's, perhaps by decade.
And, perhaps an index could be on a separate CD to date, and then
updates which could be incorporated at the end of a decade into an
updated index CD.
    Some people would still want hard copy back issues.
    It would certainly bring added revenue of some sort and would
provide an affordable way for many people to read those ever so valuable
back issues.  It would probably spur much interest and discussion and
perhaps inspire more hybridizers.
    Guess you could say I think it a grand idea.
