Thank you, Paul.  Several others wrote to check if you had
sent anything to me privately, so there must be interest. :-)

(My interest stems from two areas: simple curiosity and the
possibility of using Forth as a "scripting" language for
some embedded systems at some point, and the thought
that a Python-based Forth could be used to allow PC-side
test-driven development.  Mostly I have the same curiosity
that led you to write it in the first place, but either
less time or more laziness. ;-)
