:ostype, auto font lock, and 2.0 ?'s + thanks

Howdy. A few questions/comments:

1) I would like to use the :ostype keyword for stack trap calls but it
needs "A four-character string or symbol with a four-character print
name" (p185) and all I have is a symbol whose value is what I'd like
to be passed. Any suggestions on how to make this work from a
function (I think a macro wouldn't be too hard)? Thanks:

   ? (_CountResources :ostype "PICT" :word)	;will be within a function
   2			;right
   ? (setf temp "PICT")
   ? (_CountResources :ostype temp :word)
   0			;wrong! (probably passed "temp")

2) Does anyone have an auto font lock (like on the Lisp machines),
i.e. some FRED code that automatically puts function names and object
function names in a different (customizable) style?

3) Anyone have permission to talk about MACL 2.0 availability (time,
price, features)? I know CLOS will be the native object system and all
interface/event handling will be via CLOS and I know we'll have FRED
dialog items.

4) Thanks to the Apple folks for maintaining, reading, and replying
to this list!
