Consider for a moment two examples from the
software industy.

MSDOS 6.1, 6.2x.  I remember paying extra, (though
not too much) for disks to repair what were widely
perceived as faults or defects in the original

It is now common for a software publisher to
create a web site where you can download patches
for free.  Perhaps Errata for the UBC's could be
handled similarly.

By the way.  When I purchased the 1994 (first
printing) code (alright, my boss actually paid for
it), it came with the errata sheets attacted to
it.  First thing I did was incorporate the errata
items into my code book.  I've seen others who
simply toss the eratta sheets aside.
