This response is being composed on an Explorer which uses a Symbolics
namespace server. It has worked fine with Genera 7.2, 8.0.1, and now 8.1.
Also with Explorer system software releases 4.0 and 6.0 (and maybe some in
between. So have its 3 Explorer siblings and 12 Symbolics siblings. So it
can work and work well.
