I think it was a good thing that I went out to see some music last night.  I 
come back and find an excellent summary of where I stand, so I think I can
step back for a little while and take care of some non-lispOS related stuff. 
If I'd been online last night, I'm sure I would have argued every little point 
somewhat needlessly.

Since what I want to do is at a fairly high level (and, BTW, I'm interested in 
working on a MTA at some point, but really want an object-oriented store 
first) I'd love to see more people volunteer to do the things that are at a 
lower level than where I want to work.  I will write an interface to the unix 
filesystem if nobody else does, but I was hoping that someone else would find 
that of interest.


P.S.  If any of you are ever in Austin, I still recommend the Continental Club 
on tuesday night's.  "Happy Tuesday" with Toni Price is the longest running
no-cover regular party I'm aware of.  Also her 3rd (live album) is due out in
