	I seem to remember seeing the date of 60,000 BP. Regarding a
dispersal date, I think the best way to look at it is as "a fixed
percentage of Eve's date". So if "Eve" is set at 150KBP and dipersal at
80KBP, the fraction is roughly half. An adjustment of "Eve's" date to
200KBP suggests a dispersal shortly before 100KBP, and so on.
