Re: SUN vs Lisp machine hardware differences?

	One other point that should not be lost in the discussion is that the
	Symbolics address space contains a lot more code and data than an
	equivalent Lisp address space on a Sun.  

    Wait a minute: now you're talking about virtual address space, which is
    a question of amount of disk, rather than physical address space. 
    That's a whole different issue; let's not confuse the two.

You miss the point, he was mentioning code density and the fact that 32 bit data
doesn't take an extra word. (he was complimenting your inplementation)
