I think you will discover that the new BAGD is quite different from L&N. I
don't think anyone will want pass up getting the latest from work Fredrick
Danker just because they have L&N. IMHO that would be a serious mistake.
Comparison of these two works is a little unfair since they are conceived
with different functions in view. L&N is really a tool designed specifically
for translators using computers. It is not a general purpose lexicon. L&N
provides very little in the way of historical information (i.e., citations
form ancient sources).

I am glad that Fredrick Danker took his time in finishing this. I suspect
that the quality of the lexicon will reflect this fact.
