In point of fact, this paper is out (in the UK, at least), and since
ships realtively quickly everywhere, it should be available within week
three in the U.S., Australia, and elsewhere.

Since my name is assiciated with this thread, I would just like to add a
little clarification. It was not a Nature paper that I was worried about
taking ages to get to me, I am well aware that Nature is widely available
within weeks of publication. It is the slightly more difficult-to-get-hold
of journals I was referring to. I don't know what the situation is in the
US. but tight budgets here in Australia are cutting deep into what journals
are carried. For instance all libraries in the city I live in stopped
carrying Modern Geology in the early nineties. Journal of Paleontology was
recently put on the chopping block at our University, but fortunately was
saved (this time round), 3-P's wasn't so lucky.
