ME: All sorts of purposes.  One would be just to have a reference
around.  Another would be to use for advertising and publicity.  For
instance, if some magazine wanted to print the cover, they might need
a black-and-white copy to work from...so you'd send them either the
stat or a stat of the stat.  In some cases, a foreign publisher might
need a black-and-white stat to reprint the material.

Wow.. cool... thanks!

(and a silent thanks to Nate!)
