more (or really fewer) eclipses

Lang and I did final pair-coding work for our final list of eclipsing-ultraviolet stars in the GALEX time stream. We added one final noise-model hypothesis (my loyal reader knows that we are making a pure list by competing our positive detections against alternative noise or false-positive hypotheses with likelihood tests) and thereby pared down the list to a few sources that are all either real, or not real for reasons knowable only to those (like Schiminovich) more familiar with the spacecraft.
