For modules that were previously mentioned on the
Mathematics page and not re-hosted in your darcs
repo, I left the links as they were.

For modules that are in the repo, the original version
can always be obtained from the repo. In addition,
there is a link on the Numeric Quest page to the
author's main Haskell page in the Internet Archive.

Perhaps I should add a note to that effect.

I intentionally removed the direct links to the Archive
from the Mathematics page for modules that are now
in your repo. I estimate that people clicking from there
are more likely to be lead astray than to be helped.

Do you think it is important to have a separate link
for each repo module to the Internet Archive?
If so, they can be added to the Numeric Quest

OK - I'll add a note to that effect.

Good, thanks.
