I would love for the public repo to be on github!

I think for many, an open source project does not really exist,
unless it is on Github. We should also try to resurrect somehow,
the [picolisp] tag on Stack Overflow.

Given that it is encouraged to put in official documentation in the
form of Q/A on Stack Overflow, I think we could have a coordinated
effort from here to do it.
