That might be true, but Lisp is really a very good language for a make
scripting language, since much of make's behavior, at least in terms of
expansion of variables, etc. is somewhat Lisp-like already.

  sb> Is a make incorporating scripting likely to be 4.00? 

I don't know whether I'll bump the version to 4.00 for that or not.
