    I think we've beaten this issue into the ground.

Pretty much, but as long as we're making feature requests, I have one:
It would be nice if someday, somehow, Genera supported some tool like
RCS.  Version numbers do not do everything RCS does.  The comment-trace
for changes is nice, but what I really liked about RCS, the lack of
which has me tearing out my hair now, is the ability to do experimental
work on a branch of a program, and then merge the branch back into the
main path, while someone else on the west coast is doing the same thing
to the same program.  This kind of flexibility is what made RCS
invaluable, when I had it.
