	 An ordinary re-spin, as I use the word -- and especially the 
thing -- enables a user to install what's current now, instead of what 
was in November, without having to do vast updating to get the current 
rpms. A custom re-spin appears generally to be so called.

	The everything DVD walks like a re-spin and quacks like a re-spin 
on my end -- and such 'abuse of language,' as the mathematicians call it, 
has been normal for as much of the history of tongues as is known or can 
be inferred from extant evidence.

	So if you want to call it an again-spin, go ahead. We'll see 
which way common usage goes.
