That reminds me - a minor point, but when you accidentally select the mark region, it says "hit ESC to abort".  Just about everything else (Laurel, Bravo, Chat ...) uses esc to *confirm*, and DEL to abort.  What say?  Can I run this new Lafite in an original Carol.1 sysout?'

True, but DEL is standardly an interrupt character, and messing with interrupt chars is a pain.  Actually, any control character aborts it; I could have said "Hit BS to abort".'
I believe this version runs in <Lisp>Current>Lisp.sysout as well.'
