Re: iso work on Lisp

Scott, Thanks for those comments.  I am planning to go to the
next EuLisp meeting in Bath, England on June 2. My purpose is to
try to achieve some compromise that allows work to go forward on
what we think of as Common Lisp.  Your point is well taken ( and
I depend on you and others from the technical and steering
committees to continue to remind me) that sometimes a compromise
is really just giving up.  If Mary wants the whole piece and John
says let's each take half, it is not a compromise to give
three-fourths to Mary.  I'm sorry, it may be a compromise, but it
is not fair or reasonable.

I'll have more on this to say later.  I also want to hear from
other people.  -- Bob
