    Ok. So if no one has any objection,
let's start with ANS FORTH as the basis for our LLL.
*BUT*, do not use FORTH-specific meta-words and I/O words,
and instead study how we could achieve something more compatible
with extending the LLL toward a HLL.
    For instance, let's remove the builtin word parser of FORTH,
and allow people to use any syntactic analyser instead;
let's allow people to define *contexts* instead of the vocabulary hack.
    Explicitly buffered i/o is nice for a LLL. But the meta-words
should use more abstract, seamless, i/o instead. I hate it when all
functions must fit a block, etc.

    Actually, all that I've begun to do in the few sources I wrote
for the LLL. Let's make it official.
    Any objection ?
