    All of this flaming will cease when OZ runs TOPS-20 V5. Then you will
    be able to say SET PROGRAM FOO KEEP START, etc. This is so much nicer
    than the current way.

I assume 'you' (i.e. someone) can say SET PROGRAM FOO KEEP START
in the system startup so that it will apply globally to all
users.  That may introduce some new screws to user interfaces,
but it is better than the current situation.  Perhaps the V4
system startup should ensure that LISP (and other interesting
programs) have the correct AUTOKEEPedness and EPHEMERALness??
