Description: '
Description':This AR is not only for the support, but also for some beginnings '
of the rewrite of the internals of the system to use object oriented  programming to redo displaystreams and streams and the window system. A radical appropach to this would be to steal the Smalltalk window system en mass and  start from tht. It would have the advantage of a full-fledged object-oriented  window system, and only some political disadvantages (or maybe they are  advantages).'
