        Thanks!  I had no idea I was talking about functional-reactive
programming.  It takes a while to learn what the names of things are.  (In
my last message in reply to Robby Findler I was apparently setting out to
re-invent the wheel...)
        Do you think it would be sensible writing an application in 
MrEd->FrTime?  (I'm trying to develop a text editor.)  It seems very
appealing, but how exactly preliminary is this system?  Is the
functionality wrapped from MrEd likely to change drastically in the
future, or by "preliminary" do you mean that more libraries will be
imported over time but the core so far won't change much?
