Please feel free to whack on the spec; it's in the pugs repo for that reason. (In fact, we're moving all the specs to the pugs repo so that people can fix things that need fixing without excess interaction with document "owners".) Currently, it's called IO.pod, but it'll probably end up somewhere else in the dir structure with a more S16-io-ish name. Larry
