lol! Yeah, Larry has toned down those wild claims lately, probably
because it's becoming clear how wild they really were. BK is still ahead
of the game in terms of spit and polish, but it's starting to look as
though tla really has a sleaker and just better fundamental design,
which should help close that gap.

I notice there are not so many comments in the sources. Has anyone
considered working up a "developer's guide" to hacking tla? That would
be really cool.

Be well,
