Since I've already done a bit of bable on the subject, I'd like to 
propose a new discussion keyword, called PROC, for discussion of 
processes, scheduling, and related issues.  It might be possible to put 
this under object file format discussion, but the top would have to be 
widened a bit.  Besides, processes are a sort of big issue themselves.  
Any comments?

BTW, are messages to this list being archived?  Its a bit much trying to 
sort these message every day into various catagories.  Perhaps once we 
figure out who's maintaining what catagories, we could snag an FTP site 
somewhere, and put digests of the different catagories there.  Perhaps 
instead of simply archiving the messages, would could also trim them down 
a bit to get at the main idea, especially if the list is going to have as 
much traffic as it seems.


"If patterns of 1s and 0s were 'like' patterns of human lives and death,
if everything about an individual could be represented in a computer by a
long string of 1s and 0s, then what kind of creature would be represented
by a long string of lives and deaths?"  --Thomas Pynchon
