You did compare the two and I responded to your comparison.

I have no idea what that means.

Maybe I've read some of your books?

Great. I'm fond of RevTalk.

You mean your brain? We're alike in that way- I use mine often as well.

Yes, we're again agreed on this point. That's two!

Ack. There's the rub. Just because you believe it invaluable for yourself, doesn't make it invaluable to Rev. And the fact it is not yet any sort of current option would prove Rev's not that interested, for if they really thought they could make money with it, they would prioritize the feature.

We've established you like xtalk. Why don't you spearhead a project to convert xtalk to C? I suspect, with your skills in writing books on AI, you could also include a really nice manual. Best of luck!
