Tom and Fare are working together (I don't know how fast) on designing a
small scheme-like interpreter to run on top of Retro.  This would be the
continuation of Fare's old goal of bootstrapping the HLL by refining a
Scheme interpreter until it met his requirements for HLL.  I think his
basic idea has not changed since

I posted my idea of the future, which involves the coming together of all
the separate projects within TUNES.  Please understand the exact way it
will come together is unknown.  When I said tunes.lsp will combine with
arrow and get implemented on retro, maybe it will happen differently,
that's just a possibility.  Don't read too much into it.  The important
thing is we keep looking for ways that these separate projects *could*
come together.
