Sol passed away this spring.  I skimmed the GRASS 5.0beta code tree I have,
and couldn't find the SDTS code either.  Does anyone know where it is?

I have written some code for SDTS support that I might be willing to integrate
into GRASS; however, I am not keen on trying to support existing code unless
it is pretty easy to understand.  

Some info on my code can be found at:

My underlying ISO 8211 library (the encoding format for SDTS) can be found at:
