Wow! This is will be a great time save for both me and my wife (writing MS 
thesis at the same time). In addition this fills a nice gap in my latex 
installs -- texlive at work (debian unstable) has a newer ucthesis.cls than 
my texlive install at home (mac os ) -- causing strange errors.

I will double check with the authorities and post back of this document class 
is ok as far as my dept. is concerned- it should be...

just for the record, I unarchived what you sent, adjusted my thesis, and it 
compiles cleanly into a shiny PDF -- thanks!
