The MIT lispmachine source code had a number of neat things in it,
including regular expression handling. Perhaps some day that code
will be released with a copyright like the MIT X-window copyright notice.
And a very thorough and formal analysis and specification of the MIT
lispmachine sources has been done by a now-defunct company called
Racal-Norsk. Were anyone interested, it would seem a waste to leave so
many dozens of personyears of work in a cupboard.
