Not me. I don't remember anyone asking for it, though. Those pages are 
not particularly long compared with (say) Chapter 11.

Curses. A quick search shows 96 instances of "coordinate" vs 8 of 
"co-ordinate", and given that we also have a class with "coordinated" in 
its name, I'm going to normalize all of the hyphenated ones to the 
unhyphenated version.

If anyone has any objections, let me know.

The unwritten rules of publication state that as soon as you get 
something back from the printer, the first page you look at will have a 
glaring typo. This is the digital equivalent, I guess.
