Well, I like to know I'm going to Disneyland, even if I have to hitch
a ride to get there :-). I certainly think Henry is talking sense, and 
even Fare does from time to time <g>, but getting there is not trivial.
These ideas are for where we will go, not where we must begin, but we
need them too.

We really do need to get a more concrete plan of how to *begin* and
what LispOS 0.0.0 *must* contain -- not what LispOS 1.0.0 *will* contain.
I'm preparing a message to the list that addresses that -- let me know
what you think (not that you ever held back before).
