i will not dispute this, not my point.  but i have to respect dino and
the lisp fanboys (and, yes, they are all boys) for actually *doing*
something after 30 years of loc/id blah blah blah (as did hip).  putting
their, well dino's, code where their mouths were and going way out on a
limb.

i am *not* saying i would run it in an operational network.  but maz-san
and i were happy to help the experiment by dropping the first asian node
in a test rack on the public net.
