When you describe J-M as "newer" do you mean "newer than WOC" or "newer than 
GKC"?  I know that Jouon is much older than WOC, but I'm also wondering how 
much revising Muraoka did on it, and how much is just translation into 
English?  I've used the older Jouon before but not the J-M upgrade; could 
some folks give me your reviews of it?
