[INDOLOGY] seeking digitally-searchable Maitrī Upaniṣad

Maybe a short anecdotal remark: I remember speaking with Prof Tokunaga in
his office in around 1990, then about his input of the MBh. It was not the
text per se that he felt contained his work; he did not want to share his
input since his manner of inputting was to attach grammatical
identifications --tagging, we would call it now, at least (I don't remember
if that word was used then)--and he felt that these were his note cards, so
to speak. I recall once on another occasion asking him about the occurrence
of some compound with a ppp as the second member, and within seconds he
could give me a list of such occurrences in the MBh. So of course now that
he is no more the question may be moot, but in any event I did not have the
impression that it was the typed input per se that he was concerned about.
But while on the topic, I wonder what happened to the files that he had so
diligently analyzed...
