What is also a little different about this one is that the new rates are
close to the prior rate of $477. So rather than being a many-fold increase
like some previous contracts, it is (for us) "only"  an increase of 24%;
for others it is between 15 and 68%.  This is a high increase for no
additional material or service, but we've all seen worse.

Charging for a print journal by fte--was this ever tried in the past-- I
don't remember seeing it either.
