st: RE: mvsumm and missing obs
I think you need to clone -mvsumm- and
get your clone, called something else,
to do what you want. It's not difficult,
but speaking as a co-author of -mvsumm-
you don't have my support in this aim.
Insisting on complete windows is, I suggest,
to be regarded as a small feature
in -mvsumm-. You can nobble the code if you wish,
but that is your responsibility.
Kit Baum may or may not agree with me on this.
