That's why I based Askemos eventually at pi-Calculus, atomic steps and
message exchange.  At least we *have* *some* math for those.  N(ot
matter how much we ignore it eventually.)


PS: To the rscheme dependancy of askemos code base: it's mostly R5RS and
the chicken port once did deliver pages.  (The rscheme persistant store
used to be a bit unstable until version or so.  We recover from
a file system mirror based on plain/xml files.  The chicken version ran
just out of that one.)  But I admit that the current version will not
build with the chicken support any more.  Help appreciated.
