Richmond, I am just trying to find out if there ARE any dependencies of note

anger, except for embedded systems.

I also wanted to  know, were any of the problems extinguished by lack of
apps and libraries.  The answer to that one seems to be no.

it should be standards compliant, and if it is, it will work on all.  I
think Ion is a fair test of this.  Make it work on Ion, and it will be
standards compliant and will work on all.  If its not standard compliant,
then, as now, it will work partly, and on some.  What we want is standards
