Thanks very much for the ref Richard, it does look comprehensible at 
first glance - I guess I will have to wade in... but it does rather 
let down the charm of RunRev. As I wrote recently elsewhere, I am old 
enough to remember what programming was like in the dark ages before 
GUIs and where a command line interface at least told you there was 
an Operating System in the machine somewhere, but was nevertheless a 
dog to use - productivity in applications development was orders of 
magnitude less than it is today. I just want to avoid anything that 
takes me back to geekland. I have absolutely no nostalgia for those 
days of heroic difficulty. Life is just too short.
