A few years ago, Leo Barhorst distributed (in the BWGS, on our Flash-disk)
a set of files which contained most of the RAE-Tables. He has apparently
typed in most of the RAE-Tables by hand, and I know that Tristan Cools had
a similar project going 5 years ago. Maybe it's time for us to put it on the
SeeSat-archives (e-mail, ftp or WWW), if the author(s) agree. Leo should be
back from holidays next week, I think.

Cheers,
     Bart
