Actually, one can add Martin's package to other branches.  The
new algebra bootstrap is not needed for that.  However the
method used (compiling the whole packeage in a single compiler
image) is differnt that method suggested in Makefile.pamhlet
and similar to bootstrap procedure.  

Also, IIUC Martin's package needs various algebra fixes.
