Before I sent the email, I rescanned the entire 77 thread and did not 
find a single message mentioning that the entire 77 and 88 packages 
were going to be moved.  I was the one that suggested they should be 
renamed, but others should have gotten fair notice.  I also did not 
find any mention of the State and Notification classes moving to spec.  
I may have just plain missed it, but that is the point of my 
suggestion.  Others need fair warning when a major class or entire tree 
will be moved.
