I wasn't talking syntax, I was talking about machines doing
the dull, tedious, and _very_ machanical aspects of all this.

Yes, *a user* doing what aught be the domain of *a machine*.
And if the list processor did get smart, how would whatever
smartness is did interact with that of a user that had a
setup which handled the mechanical details realated to the
_semmantics_ of all this. There's more to life than syntax!
Not that I expect it to ever get done well, but I can
raise the issues and have that small bit of hope that
it will mean something, to someone, somewhere...

indivdual user to set up and test "the solution", I can
see how it all slipped back under the radar. Oh well.
