Stop literal really means suspend. Words mean what the committee
thinks they mean, I guess.
IMHO = In My Humble Opinion ie "I think so but I am not being
dogmatic about it".
I don't understand the reason for the PIC on display statements.
If there is a need for it, and you may have a better idea than
me, then put it in. If not then the design principle of "you aint
gonna need it" applies and it should not be there IMHO of course.
But not a big deal as it is optional.
I do not have an accept routine at the moment. Next week maybe we
should map out the priorities for the next few months.
