there is now a section "The System View", and a new paper draft entitled
"The EROS System Structure". This is a work in progress. It notably
hasn't dealt with any objects that any of us would normally want to
implement (yet), but this type of document needs to proceed bottom-up,
and this is as far as I have gotten. Hopefully, this will begin to
answer *some* of Marcus's questions (and perhaps those of others). If
nothing else, it may help to make some of them concrete.

A figure is *desperately* needed in Part II. I will make one.

As more progress is made, I will send out pings to this list.
