Hello Steve

Thanks for your thoughts.

I wasn't trying to 'rubbish' the collectors, or to underplay the importance of their work. I was just musing. Sorry if it came across that way.

Keeping manuscripts (and recordings) is good, it's like researchers having their 'raw data' available for others wanting to review their research.
