run Genera, and that the customers will sit still until Symbolics
gets its act together.  Personally, I just run Genera less often.

But not even fixing it so the meta-key works again until this fall
is so obviously absurd I refuse to believe that Symbolics won't do
something reasonable more quickly.  (I leave it as an excersize for

    scheduled to be shipped in the fall.
