Three -me files list a "current" (postal) address for their author.  It is remotely possible that this address, which has remained unchanged in these files since at least 1991, is in fact still current, but this seems unlikely enough that I've written the attached patch to remove these instances of the address.

The address in tmac/e.tmac-u doesn't currently get installed (until bug #55091 is fixed) but the others do.

A current email address for him could actually be useful, but I don't have one (and we'd need his consent before adding it), so for now this patch simply removes any pretense of providing contact information.
