Would he know how? His email implies that he doesn't have the
expertise to do that. Hence his need for a ready-computed
chronology. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about, since I'd have
thought Gordon Jacoby would be more reluctant to release the
individual cores than the chronology, yet the former are apparently
at ITRDB and the latter is not... maybe there's some reluctance to
make the chronology available because of the way Tom has approached
this or due to some other personality issue?
