Oh! Fine. :-)

Jep. Had a short look at it. But as you say: It seems to be a
reimplmentation of TeX. That's ok, cause that was the goal for version
1.0 but as far as I can see it's (sorry) nearly useless. I'm not that
deep in the NTS code to be sure, but because it's a reimplementation I
could image that NTS simulates ASCII-code instead of using Unicode. So
there would be no additional value. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
