							   Unfortunately, we
	are told there is an additional $8k for the "MacIvory Devlopement

    What's in the "development" package that's not in the delivery package?
    EVAL, perhaps?  (only a semi-joke -- a certain mac implementation
    features EVAL as a seperately loadable package).

Zwei.  Zmail.  The Debugger.  Metering.  Most of the compiler.  You get
the idea...

In fact, the ultimate delivery package contains very little except for
the operating system itself (paging, GC, scheduler, etc.), Symbolics
Common Lisp, and the user-interface support.  In reality, each delivery
application will have special requirements which will necessitate
additional pieces of Genera being included.
