*I* don't advocate the file system on the Sun; that doesn't change the fact
that we're stuck with it, though!
In any case, thanks for your reply.
I lost something. Which file system has not caught up with the 1960's,
ones with version numbers or ones without? They have both been around
a long time. I find automatic version numbers mildly annoying at
best. At least Unix lets you have it both ways, for example we use
an NFS on our LISPM and Suns that maintains version numbers in
directories that have files with version number extensions.
