The WZ method has successfully found a recurrence for the appearing in (8.1) of [2]. This identity was posed as a conjecture at the Ann Arbor Conference on Algebra and Combinatorics in June 1994. D. Stanton observed that it is a special case of [8, eq. (1.8),] (Click here to see this equation) and subsequently D. Zeilberger proved it by using the WZ method to find a recurrence. A fuller account will appear elsewhere [4]. In addition, I have been unable to prove any ``series to series'' identities using Pfaff. Perhaps Whipple's celebrated theorem [12] (cf. [6, p. 25, eq. (4),]) will be the most instructive example.
