M/L paper really close

I know I said it was close before, but unless something comes up it should be out in a couple of weeks. If things move fast it could come out with papers I and II, which should come out this week.

For those who want a preview: the M/L goes as M^0.33 within r200, the M/L reaches an asymptotic value on large scales (20Mpc) and when you multiply that number by the luminosity density you get 0.20 +/- 0.02. There is a factor of bias on that too, but we don't know what it is exactly other than it should be of order unity.
