But does your software really matter when there is Factor? http:// 

Why not just merge with Factor and take the saved development time to  
do more interesting things?

Most TUNES members really do not follow what is actually going on in  
the wide world of computer science. That's worthless for this  
project, since the point is to provide a common convergence goal. The  
lone-wolf TUNES implementor is a FOOL.
