not to worry, spad isn't going away any time soon.

there are 1100 domains that would need rework which could be done
but no-one will do.

aldor isn't available.

spad and aldor are 99% compatible. aldor needs special constructs
because it runs standalone but it is conceptually the same.

aldor has an idea or two (like post-facto extensions) which are
not used or required in spad.

documenting how to program has SO little to do with the language
that we could do a s/spad/aldor/ (if i spoke sed) and get the same
results. we could call it SPALDOR :-)
