I do not have an answer to Dave Donaghy's question:

but the recommendation to contact Larry Grove (Tucson)
(grove@math.arizona.edu) who has used GAP and Maple in the
investigation of invariants during a visit to Aachen and might have
some advice.

Since this is an area that we have been asked about more often, I
would welcome further comments in the GAP-forum, if somebody has some
