Indeed, why do you think I fixed the spec?  :)

But don't worry, we tend to do thing on the basis of forgiveness
rather than permission, so I'm glad you did that or I wouldn't have
noticed the $?PROGRAM problem.  (The reason it can't be $?PROGRAM is
that the name of the eventual executable program can't necessarily
be known at compile time, which $? implies.  $? variables have to be
constants known at compile time.)
