Why are you so reluctant to open up the discussion to the other
editors? Especially when I'm obviously interested (and possibly
Matthew with whom we discussed I/O at Snowbird) I'm not asking for all
the details. Just enough to understand which aspects of I/O you are
concerning yourself with. Which **problems** are you trying to solve?
In other words what do you mean by "I/O"? Is it "classical"
filesystem stuff? Do you include file naming issues? Text encoding?
Filesystem operations (delete-file, etc or just open/read/write/close
of files)? Sockets? Pipes? Interprocess communication?
