I think that mutated into ANM [advanced network management].  Bruce Laird 
took it over and I was project lead.   We were starting with the Lisp code that Jil's 
group had done and were porting/reinventing it as a distributed program for 
Sun workstations.   We actually got it working and I heard, after I had retired 
and headed farm-wad, that it was actually in use in the CSNET.

I forget who was working on it.  For sure David Waitzman and Doug Gallagher.
Bruce Laird or David will likely remember more about this than I do.  Is either on 
this list?
