   Actually, the two are being folded together in some sense, but will
remain distinct in others.  I've been going through Tim's pages and doing
my best to make sure that his testable statements are reflected in the
pages I'm doing.  However, it's likely that there will be a link from the
suite I announced to Tim's pages, for those who want to dive into the true
nitty-gritty of the specification.
   Tim is, in fact, one of the people with whom I've been working to create
the suite I announced yesterday.  Once the suite's history page is fleshed
out, his role in all of this should be abundantly clear.

>This draft must represent a ton of work. Congratulations, and thanks.

   I second that wholeheartedly.  When I first looked at Tim's pages, I
shook my head in wonder at the sheer amount of work and thought that had
obviously gone into them.  There are many pages in the test suite which
would not be as useful as they are without Tim's work, and many more will
be improved thanks to what he's done.
