I haven't given up completely.  I'm still writing code, adoptiong lots of
things from miles of e-mail paper tape.  :)

I'm just staying quiet for now and making the code work.  When I have
something that looks a lot better, and addresses all the concerns in a
minimum of code, I'll be reposting about it and ask for more criticism then.

This has been a learning experience, to be sure.  And I have nothing against
NetBSD, Charles personally, or anyone else here because of it.
