Sorry, I meant the only implementation was to directly or indirectly
inform a Stamp under a frozen Bert.
Does it matter in this example whether or not the *Bert* is frozen?
I'm actually pretty hopeful about good descriptions. We won't have to
describe why we chose a particular set of semantics. The better all
the pieces work together and the fewer distinctions there are, the
easier the explanation will be. This is one of the reasons I want to
reduce or eliminate the distinctions between DataThingies and
nonDataThingies. (Boy do I like that term! :-)
Well, if you want to remove the distinction, the first issue to be
addressed is that of synchronizing the inform operations other than
through Stamp grabbing. I'm sure this is doable, I'm just uncertain
about whether the result will introduce more mess than it will allow
to be removed. Definitely an experiment to try when we can afford the
Ah, time. Speaking of time, I STILL DON'T HAVE BACKFOLLOW DONE!
Until I do, I'm going to try real hard not to answer any more of these
messages. This shouldn't at all inhibit you from sending them out
though. It will eventually be appropriate for me to answer them
again, and I think this correspondence will be very valuable to us.
