I would hope and expect it's Turing complete (within the usual
hardware-finiteness limitation:-), but I don't *WANT* to program
in Basic.  I'd rather go back to MS Office and Windows 98, if
using Basic instead of Python was the price to pay for Linux,
OpenBSD, and other wonderful operating systems.  I'm pretty sure
there is no such price to be paid, however:-).
