Bill,
I figured the odds were good that we would agree on updating the
bootstrap code. I have about 37 (out of 85) more files to update. I
have discovered another problem in the bootstrap code so far: EUCDOM
is missing the code for expressIdealMember.

Given that we may need to work with the current build configuration
for some time, I figured automating the process of writing out fresh
bootstrap code might be a plausible, lightweight, solution for
now. The `by hand' method has the virtue of forcing one to pay
attention, yet is error prone by its nature. It will take some testing
for me to be convinced that the updates I am doing now are not
introducing any new bugs. Conversely, it would take some testing for
me to be confident some custom build tool was doing its job.

I would prefer to get the changes written, then package up a set of
patches to distribute to yourself and Tim. You guys have about a
gazillion times more experience testing a freshly built system then I
do ( of course, I will do a build-test cycle as well ). I'll update the
language branch, but until I'm more seasoned I'd prefer to regard
main as `hands off'.

I agree. For myself at least, learning how things are done today can
only help in realizing what we want to achieve down the road.
Cheers,
