In our original opinion, we decided the merits of this attempted Abney1-type appeal on the assumption that we had jurisdiction to do so, expressly reserving that question. Since then it has been determined that we lack such jurisdiction. United States v. Becton, 632 F.2d 1294 (5th Cir. 1980). What we earlier wrote on the merits is therefore of no effect. We withdraw it. The appeal is

DISMISSED.
