I have removed pspp-mode.el from the PSPP repository.

If debian or other packagers want to have pspp-mode automatically
installed, then I guess it would be as simple as putting

(package-install 'pspp-mode nil) 

in the site-emacs file.

     Until now I included the pspp-mode.el in the pspp debian package where it 
is then installed as an ???external??? elpa package. The benefit is that once I 
install pspp, then the pspp-mode is autoloaded in emacs right away, i.e. when I 
open a .sps file, then the mode is immediately working. I think it is nice that 
I do not even need to know ELPA and the mode works in emacs right away when I 
install the debian pspp package. So maybe that is a reason to keep pspp-mode.el 
in the distribution. An alternative way would be  to find a way that installing 
the pspp package will ???activate??? the pspp-mode.el from GNU ELPA.
