1. What is the story on the idea of built-in?
I'll try to send out in a separate message a cleanup of the built-in-class
message that Danny and Gregor sent, to be more appropriate to go into the
document. It's late, I guess that message won't go out until Tuesday.
This turned out to be very much more difficult than I expected. At the next
level of detail behind Danny's message of 22 October, there is a great deal
of ill-definedness and unclarity. I'll try to send something out later today,
but there is an excellent chance that it will be delayed until tomorrow.
If in the process of writing it I end up convincing myself that built-in-class
is a bad idea after all, I'll try to send something out explaining the reasoning
that got me there.
