Of course it makes sense you don't have to do anything people ask you
on a mailing list :-D which is why I emphasise I was just
"campaigning" for the merits of a workflow in the broader context (and
I believe others were too) - it can't hurt to try to sway opinion
occasionally... Of course the debate about workflows helping
user-flexibility, community-building, integration, exposure, etc all
comes second-priority to you developing picolisp in the way that
doesn't obstruct/limit you. For that reason it is good you outlined
your workflow so clearly:

..so anyone who wants to pursue the issue in the future can read that
in the mail-archives before doing so.
