Mark and others,

My understanding from the Criterion person who attended the Frampton
Conference in Chicago (the person Fred Camper mentioned) is that this will
be a three-disc set.

Several others there besides Fred were encouraging her to push for all of
HAPAX on the set. It sounded like she was convinced, but I think she's
handling the bonus features for the discs and does not make main selections
of the films.

So, right now, I think it will be HAPAX on one disc; ZORNS LEMMA, a
selection of earlier shorts, and a selection of films from the Magellan
cycle spread over the other two. Plus their usual generous assortment of
bonus material.
